PREFACE 

The  constitution  of  the  Fraternity  provides  for  the  is- 
suance of  a  General  Register  every  ten  years.  The  edition  of 
1910  was  a  long  advance  over  the  semi-centennial  book  of 
1900,  which  was  the  first  issue  which  attempted  to  give  detailed 
biographical  data.  The  work  on  this  present  volume  was 
greatly  simplified  not  only  because  of  the  data  available  from 
the  1910  Register  but  also  because  of  the  collection  during  the 
intervening  ten  years  of  biographical  material  from  members 
whose  data  was  incomplete  or  missing  in  the  former  book.  On 
the  other  hand  over  two  thousand  new  members  joined  the 
Fraternity  in  the  last  decade.  Information  blanks  were  again 
sent  out  to  all  living  members  and  all  material  taken  from  the 
former  book  has  been  carefully  edited  and  revised. 

Over  twenty-four  hundred  members  of  the  Fraternity  were 
in  the  service  of  the  country  during  the  Great  War,  and  it  is 
peculiarly  appropriate  that  this  book  should  contain  a  pei'ma- 
nent  record  of  such  service. 

A  general  catalog  of  the  membership  of  any  organization 
is  useful  in  proportion  to  the  thoroughness  of  its  preparation 
and  the  accuracy  of  its  information.  This  book  is  offered  to 
the  Fraternity  in  the  hope  that  it  meets  such  test,  although 
it  is  practically  impossible  to  avoid  all  errors.  Where  the 
biographical  data  is  incomplete  or  lacking  the  cause  is  the 
failure  of  some  members  to  respond  or,  in  the  case  of  deceased 
members,  the  failure  of  repeated  efforts  to  locate  descendants 
or  others  who  might  give  the  desired  information. 

Boyd  Lee  Spahr,  Epsilon,  '00, 

Grand  Upsilon. 


NOTE. 

The  fact  that  a  member  is  deceased  is  denoted  by  a  star  (*). 

Members  who  have  been  transferred  from  one  chapter  to  another  are 
recorded  only  in  their  original  chapter,  the  initial  of  the  transferee  chapter 
being  placed  in  parentheses  after  the  name  of  the  member. 

Academic  degrees  are  given  only  when  known  to  be  correct. 

The  name  of  the  institution  conferring  the  degree  is  not  given  where 
it  is  the  same  as  that  of  the  chapter  of  the  member.  Otherwise  it  is  given, 
in  brackets.  Degrees  separated  by  a  semicolon  were  given  by  different 
institutions. 

Mention  of  relationship  has  been  limited  to  fathers  and  sons  and  to 
brothers.  The  names  of  children  not  members  of  the  Fraternity  have  been 
omitted,  as  their  inclusion  would  needlessly  enlarge  the  book.

*  The  tenth  convention  marked  the  creation  of  the  Grand  Chapter  as  it  now  exists. 
Prior  to  that  time  the  conventions  were  not  known  as  sessions  of  the  Grand  Chapter, 
but   simply   as   meetings   of   delegates   of  the   several   chapters.

A  History  of  the  Government  of  the 
Fraternity,  1 850-1920. 


In  the  archives  of  the  Grand  Chapter  of  the  Phi  Kappa 
Sigma  Fraternity,  in  the  possession  of  the  Executive  Board,  is 
the  original  Constitution  of  the  Fraternity,  written  in  the  hand 
of  Samuel  Brown  Wylie  Mitchell,  the  founder,  and  dated  Oc- 
tober 19,  1850.  Many  of  the  general  expressions  of  this  Con- 
stitution are  to  be  found  in  the  Constitution  of  the  present  day 
in  the  same  words,  although  most  of  the  particular  provisions 
have  been  amended  at  various  times.  The  details  of  the  origin 
of  the  Alpha  Chapter  and,  ipso  facto,  of  the  origin  of  the  Fra- 
ternity, will  be  found  in  the  history  of  Alpha  Chapter  elsewhere 
in  this  volume,  the  purpose  of  this  sketch  being  to  give  a  run- 
ning survey  of  the  history  of  the  Fraternity  as  a  national  or- 
ganization, and  of  its  growth  and  government  during  the  seventy 
years  of  its  existence. 

That  it  was  intended  from  the  beginning  by  Dr.  Mitchell 
and  his  co-founders  that  the  Fraternity  should  become  a 
national  one  is  evident  from  the  fact  that  one  of  the  articles  of 
the  original  Constitution  is  entitled,  "  Branch  Societies  or  Chap- 
ters," in  which  it  is  provided  that  such  chapters  may  be  created 
in  other  institutions  of  learning  upon  application  being  made 
to  the  Alpha  Chapter  and  approval  by  a  majority  of  the 
whole  number  of  the  members  of  that  chapter.  It  was  not  until 
two  and  a  half  years  later,  namely,  on  April  23,  1853,  that  the 
Beta  Chapter  was  established  at  Princeton  University.  This 
was  followed  in  quick  succession  by  the  establishment  of  the 
Gamma  Chapter  at  Lafayette  College,  instituted  December  20, 
1853;  the  Delta  Chapter  at  Jefferson  (now  Washington  and

Jefferson)  College,  instituted  June  5,  1854;  the  Epsilon  Chap- 
ter at  Dickinson  College,  instituted  September  5,  1854,  and  the 
Zeta  Chapter  at  Franklin  and  Marshall  College,  instituted 
October  13,  1851.  All  of  this  first  group  of  new  chapters  were 
located  in  territory  contiguous  to  the  University  of  Pennsyl- 
vania. There  was  at  this  time  in  the  University  a  large  per- 
centage of  students  from  the  Southern  States,  especially  in  the 
Medical  School,  from  which  many  of  the  early  members  of 
Alpha  Chapter  were  drawn,  and  it  was  therefore  but  natural 
that  further  expansion  should  be  in  that  region,  and  so  we  find 
the  next  chapter  erected  to  be  Eta  Chapter  at  the  University 
of  Virginia,  instituted  on  December  31,  1854,  and  followed  by 
the  Theta  Chapter  at  Centenary  College  of  Louisiana  on  June 
1,  1855.  In  fact,  with  the  exception  of  Iota  Chapter,  founded 
at  Columbia  College  on  November  10,  1855,  all  of  the  remaining 
chapters  instituted  prior  to  the  Civil  War  were  in  the  South. 
These  were  the  Kappa  Chapter  at  Emory  and  Henry  College  on 
July  1,  1856 ;  Lambda  Chapter  at  the  University  of  North  Caro- 
lina on  November  12,  1856;  Mu  Chapter  at  the  University  of 
Louisiana  (now  Tulane  University)  on  January  14,  1858;  Nu 
Chapter  at  Cumberland  University  on  March  18,  1859;  Xi 
Chapter  at  the  University  of  Mississippi  on  December  2,  1859 ; 
and  Omicron  Chapter  at  Centre  College  (now  Central  Univer- 
sity of  Kentucky)  in  January,  1860. 

The  original  Constitution  provided  that  whenever  it  should 
be  deemed  necessary  by  a  majority  of  the  whole  number  of 
chapters,  the  Alpha  Chapter  should  call  a  convention  to  be 
held  in  Philadelphia  to  be  attended  by  three  delegates  from  each 
chapter.  This  was  the  only  provision  for  many  years  concern- 
ing the  national  government  of  the  Fraternity.  Under  it  con- 
ventions were  held  until  the  breaking  out  of  the  Civil  War.  The 
powers  of  this  convention,  however,  were  not  clearly  defined, 
and  there  was  no  permanent  organization  such  as  now  exists  in 
tin  shape  of  the  Executive  Board,  which  is  the  executive  of  the 
Fraternity  between  the  sessions  of  the  Grand  Chapter.  The 
conventions  met  from  time  to  time  and  organized  by  the  election 
of  a  President  and  Secretary  and  a  list  of  Vice-Presidents,  one 
from  each  chapter.     These  officers  performed  the  usual  clerical

duties  during  the  meeting,  but  ceased  to  exist  upon  adjourn- 
ment. The  power  of  a  permanent  executive,  if  such  it  can  be 
called,  was  lodged  in  the  Alpha  Chapter,  which,  through  corre- 
spondence with  the  other  chapters,  performed  such  functions  as 
were  necessary  between  the  conventions. 

The  first  convention  of  the  Fraternity  was  held  on  August 
9,  1854,  at  Philadelphia.  Although  Alpha,  Beta,  Gamma  and 
Delta  were  then  in  existence,  delegates  from  the  first  two  only 
were  present.  Dr.  Morris  J.  Asch,  of  Alpha,  presided,  with 
William  M.  McKeen,  of  Alpha,  as  Secretary.  The  minutes  of 
this  meeting  are  very  brief  and  disclose  little  of  importance. 
Indeed,  the  second  convention,  held  a  year  and  a  half  later,  was 
for  many  years  regarded  as  the  first  convention.  The  fact, 
however,  that  one  was  held  in  1854  has  been  established  by  the 
discovery  in  1909  of  the  original  minutes. 

The  second  convention  assembled  at  the  call  of  the  Alpha 
Chapter  on  January  10  and  11,  1856,  at  the  United  States 
Hotel  in  Philadelphia.  There  were  then  nine  chapters  in  exist- 
ence, of  which  five  were  present  and  four  absent.  Dr.  Asch 
was  elected  President  and  Dr.  Mitchell,  Secretary.  The  most 
interesting  feature  connected  with  this  convention  was  the 
amendment  to  the  Constitution  requiring  that  in  the  creation 
of  new  chapters  the  unanimous  consent  of  all  the  chapters  must 
be  given.  While  there  is  no  positive  evidence,  it  is  probable  that 
prior  to  this  time  new  chapters  were  created  by  the  action  of 
Alpha  Chapter  alone.  It  was  further  provided  that  the  char- 
ters of  new  chapters  should  be  issued  by  the  Alpha  Chapter  in 
the  name  of  the  Fraternity.  At  this  convention  originated  the 
custom  of  the  annual  delivery  of  an  oration  and  a  poem.  The 
orator  was  Stacy  Gardner  Potts,  Jr.,  of  Beta,  and  the  poem 
was  prepared  by  Henry  Hudnall,  of  Eta,  and  read  in  his 
absence.  This  convention  also  directed  the  publication  of  a 
Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Song  Book,  which  never  materialized.  The 
reports  given  by  the  chapters  in  this  and  the  succeeding  con- 
ventions show  that  most  of  the  chapters  were  existing  sub  rosa, 
due  to  faculty  opposition,  which  in  some  institutions  took  the 
aggressive  form  of  requiring  upon  entrance  an  oath  directed 
against  joining  Greek  Letter  Societies.     Apparently  no  Phi 


26  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

Kap  of  that  day  had  the  slightest  compunction  in  breaking  this 
oath,  for  the  more  stringent  the  opposition  the  more  the  chap- 
ters flourished.  An  example  of  this  is  on  record  at  Epsilon 
Chapter,  where  the  facult}',  learning  the  names  of  the  members, 
called  upon  them  to  disband  under  penalty  of  expulsion.  The 
latter,  seeing  a  loophole  through  which  to  escape,  readily  agreed, 
but  as  nothing  was  said  against  reorganization,  as  readily  reor- 
ganized. 

The  third  convention  was  held  on  December  22-23,  1856, 
at  the  rooms  of  the  Alpha  Chapter  in  Philadelphia.  There 
were  then  eleven  chapters,  of  which  all  were  represented  except 
Lambda.  Frank  S.  Findla}',  of  Epsilon,  was  elected  President 
and  Edmund  C.  Pechin,  of  Alpha,  Secretary.  Stacy  Gardner 
Potts,  Jr.,  of  Beta,  delivered  a  poem  and  Dr.  Mitchell  was  the 
orator.  Concerning  his  oration,  the  minutes  state :  "  Dr. 
Samuel  Brown  Wylie  Mitchell  was  then  introduced  by  the  Presi- 
dent and  proceeded  to  deliver  his  oration,  which  was  vigorous, 
beautiful  and  eloquent,  and  while  it  riveted  the  attention  of  his 
hearers  throughout,  did  not  fail  to  elicit  frequent  remarks  of 
approbation."  At  this  convention  a  sinking  fund  was  origi- 
nated, which  in  a  small  way  was  the  forerunner  of  the  present 
Endowment  Fund.  It  was  doomed,  however,  to  early  failure 
and  two  years  later,  only  a  small  amount  having  been  collected, 
it  was  directed  that  the  fund  be  disbanded  and  the  money 
returned  to  the  donors. 

It  should  be  here  noted  that  in  1857  the  idea  of  a  publica- 
tion was  conceived  and  resulted  in  the  appearance  in  March  of 
that  year  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Magazine,  edited  by  Edmund 
C.  Pechin,  Samuel  Dickson  and  J.  Leighton  McKim,  all  of 
Alpha  Chapter.  It  was  not  printed,  but  written  in  long  hand 
and  read  at  the  chapter  meetings.  At  least  seven  different 
issues  appeared.  Truly  prophetic  was  the  editorial  of  the 
original  issue,  written  by  Brother  Pechin,  which  stated,  "  Those 
who  have  originated  this  Magazine  have  sought  to  look  beyond 
the  future,  and  hopefully  believe  that  the  day  will  come  when  a 
paper  edited  and  published  by  Phi  Kaps  shall  be  furnished  to 
every  member  of  the  Fraternity.  We  may  run  the  risk  of  being 
visionary,   but   it   is    quite   within    the    range    of   possibility." 


HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.       27 

Forty-four  years  later  this  dream  has  realized  in  the  shape  of 
the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  News  Letter. 

The  fourth  convention  assembled  at  Gautier's  Hotel,  Wash- 
ington, D.  C.j  on  December  28-29,  1858,  having  been  postponed 
for  one  year  on  account  of  the  then  prevailing  financial  depres- 
sion. Eight  of  the  twelve  chapters  were  represented.  William 
J.  Stevenson,  of  Epsilon,  presided,  and  Dr.  Mitchell  again  acted 
as  secretary.  The  evident  need  of  a  stronger  central  govern- 
ment produced  at  this  convention  a  body  known  as  the  "  Su- 
preme Consistory,"  which  was  to  exercise  the  executive  and 
judicial  functions  of  the  Fraternity.  Its  membership  consisted 
of  all  Alphas  and  ex-Alphas  of  the  several  chapters.  The 
officers  of  the  Consistory  were  an  Alpha,  a  Beta,  a  Pi,  an  Upsi- 
lon,  a  Sigma,  a  Tau  and  an  Iota,  the  unmistakable  ancestors  of 
the  present  Grand  Officers.  These  officers  together  formed  a 
board  called  the  "  Grand  Arch  Tribunal."  The  Supreme  Con- 
sistory was  divided  into  seven  departments,  the  duties  of  which 
covered  every  conceivable  phase  of  fraternity  activity.  It  was 
further  provided  that  the  Consistory  should  meet  semi-annually 
in  Philadelphia,  while  the  Grand  Arch  Tribunal  and  each  of  the 
seven  departments  should  hold  quarterly  meetings  at  the  same 
place.  To  divert  a  moment  from  the  chronological  history  of 
the  Fraternity,  it  may  be  noted  that  the  first,  last  and  only 
meeting  of  the  Supreme  Consistory  was  held  in  Philadelphia  on 
December  28—29,  1859.  Seventeen  members  were  present,  but 
as  twenty-two  were  necessary  to  constitute  a  quorum,  the  Con- 
sistory adjourned,  although  numerous  committees  were  ap- 
pointed to  carry  on  the  work  of  the  various  departments.  At 
the  convention  of  the  following  year,  the  Consistory  was  abol- 
ished, only  to  be  reorganized,  so  as  to  consist  of  three  delegates 
from  each  chapter  instead  of  the  Alphas  and  past  Alphas,  and 
Dr.  Mitchell  was  created  its  head  for  a  term  of  two  years.  It 
does  not  appear,  however,  that  anything  further  was  done  by 
this  cumbersome  and  high-sounding  body. 

The  Washington  Convention  of  1858  is  further  interesting 
in  that  the  minutes  show  that  Attorney-General  Black,  whose 
son,  Chauncey  F.  Black,  of  Delta,  was  a  delegate  to  the  conven- 
tion, had  arranged  to  present  the  members  to  President  Bu- 


28  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

chanan.  The  minutes  of  the  convention  state:  "  The  Frater- 
nity headed  by  the  officers  of  the  convention  proceeded  to  the 
office  of  the  Attorney-General,  by  whom  they  were  cordially 
received  and  escorted  to  the  White  House.  Each  one  by  name 
was  presented  to  the  President,  after  which  Mr.  Stevenson  made 
a  short  but  exceedingly  appropriate  address,  informing  the 
President  of  the  object  of  their  call,  to  pay  that  tribute  of  re- 
spect to  which  he,  as  a  man,  and  as  the  Chief  Magistrate  of  the 
nation  was  so  eminently  entitled,  and,  in  referring  to  the  Fra- 
ternity, mentioned  that  every  portion  of  the  Union  was  there 
represented.  The  President,  after  alluding  in  flattering  terms 
to  the  visit,  spoke  of  the  influence  of  such  conventions,  composed 
as  they  were  of  the  best  educated  young  men  of  the  country, 
facetioushy  remarking  '  that  an  old  man  like  himself  might  stand 
in  dread  of  being  blown  "  sky  high,"  '  and  in  relation  to  the 
responsibility  resting  upon  them,  expressed  the  earnest  hope 
that  they  would  all  prove  devoted  to  the  interests,  and  use  their 
influence  in  maintaining  the  integrity  and  preserving  the  glory 
of  the  Union."  The  convention  closed  with  an  oration  by  Sam- 
uel Dickson,  of  Alpha,  and  a  poem  by  William  Baillie  Ritter, 
of  Eta. 

The  Convention  of  December  27-28,  1860,  held  in  New 
York,  was  a  memorable  one  in  the  annals  of  the  Fraternity. 
Of  the  fifteen  chapters,  twelve  were  present.  "  The  integrity  of 
the  Union  "  referred  to  by  President  Buchanan  two  years  before 
was  then  seriously  threatened.  The  election  of  President  Lin- 
coln had  taken  place  the  preceding  month,  and  it  is  easy  to 
imagine  that  the  state  of  excitement  in  the  country  was  reflected 
among  the  delegates.  Prior  to  the  assemblage  of  the  conven- 
tion, Mu  Chapter  had,  on  December  18,  addressed  a  circular 
letter  to  all  the  chapters,  calling  attention  to  the  political  con- 
dition of  the  country  and  emphasizing  the  claims  of  the  state  as 
"  paramount  to  all  other  considerations."  It  submitted  to  the 
chapters  a  series  of  questions,  inquiring  whether  the  Fraternity 
could  continue  as  a  united  body  in  case  of  a  dissolution  of  the 
Union ;  what  steps  could  be  taken  to  meet  the  new  relations 
arising  from  such  dissolution ;  and  whether  an  amendment  should 
not  be  inserted  in  the  ritual  of  initiation  obliging  each  member 


HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.        29 

"  to  still  sectional  interference  and  agitation."  In  accordance 
with  the  purport  of  this  letter,  William  P.  Grivot,  of  Mu, 
offered  at  the  convention  a  resolution  recommending  that  "  an 
obligation  be  placed  in  the  ceremony  of  initiation  which  shall 
recognize  the  social  distinction  between  the  white  and  black 
races."  The  slavery  question  thus  injected  into  the  Fraternity 
consumed  the  entire  attention  of  the  convention.  Theta  Chap- 
ter, following  the  example  of  Mu,  offered  a  resolution  calling 
for  the  same  constitutional  amendment,  prefaced  by  various  pre- 
ambles reciting  the  condition  of  the  country.  Strange  to  say, 
Xi  Chapter  from  the  neighboring  State  of  Mississippi  presented 
a  motion  that  no  resolution  of  a  political  nature  should  be 
admitted  before  the  convention.  To  this  the  Theta  Chapter 
retorted  that  its  resolution  was  not  a  political  sentiment,  but 
"  a  just  demand  of  a  necessary  recognition  of  principle  within 
the  Fraternity."  After  a  long  debate,  it  was  decided  that  "  in 
view  of  the  present  distracted  and  eminently  critical  condition 
of  our  country,  deeply  affecting  all  classes  of  citizens,  a  com- 
mittee of  one  from  every  chapter  should  be  appointed  to  pre- 
pare an  address  to  the  chapters  and  members  of  the  Fraternity, 
and  that  all  addresses,  resolutions  and  communications  of  a 
political  nature  should  be  referred  to  that  committee."  The 
committee  was  accordingly  appointed  and  on  the  following  day 
presented  both  a  majority  and  a  minority  report.  The  major- 
ity, composed  of  the  committeemen  from  Beta,  Epsilon,  Zeta 
and  all  of  the  Southern  chapters,  except  Xi,  reported  that  an 
address  alone  would  be  inadequate  to  meet  the  difficulties  of  the 
occasion,  and  they  therefore  proposed  a  resolution  stating  that 
the  Fraternity  recognize  the  social  distinction  between  white  and 
black  races,  and  they  further  proposed  a  constitutional  amend- 
ment to  carry  into  effect  the  resolution.  The  minority  report, 
submitted  by  the  remaining  Northern  committeemen,  together 
with  Xi,  reported  that  in  their  opinion  an  address  would  be 
amply  sufficient.  After  an  animated  discussion  the  whole  mat- 
ter was  referred  back  to  the  committee,  with  the  result  that  the 
committee  unanimously  reported  that  an  address  be  sent  out, 
and  that  the  initiation  ritual  include  a  pledge  "  to  still  all  po- 
litical and  religious   interference   and  agitation  whenever   and 


30  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

wherever  it  may  arise  in  the  Fraternit}'."  An  address  was 
accordingly  prepared  and  dispatched  to  all  the  chapters,  signed 
by  the  entire  thirty-four  delegates.  In  a  dignified  style  it  pro- 
claimed the  stability  and  union  of  the  Fraternity  irrespective  of 
political  dissolution  and  urged  fraternal  harmony  among  the 
members.  This  brief  sketch  of  the  slavery  agitation  at  this 
convention,  recounting  it  only  as  disclosed  by  the  minutes,  neces- 
sarily leaves  to  the  imagination  the  heated  political  arguments 
which  must  have  taken  place  among  the  delegates. 

The  convention  closed  with  a  dinner  at  the  Fifth  Avenue 
Hotel,  at  which  an  oration  was  delivered  by  William  Godley,  of 
Beta,  and  a  poem  by  Albert  H.  Slape,  of  Epsilon.  The  minutes 
note  that  at  the  same  time  and  place  the  Delta  Kappa  Epsilon 
was  holding  a  banquet  and  that  an  interchange  of  sentiments 
was  had  between  the  banquets.  To  the  Delta  Kappa  Epsilon 
was  sent  the  following: 

"  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  to  Delta  Kappa  Epsilon :  The  secret 
societies  of  America  —  may  an  honorable  rivalry  ever  incite 
them  and  harmony  characterize  their  intercourse."  The  reply : 
"  Six  cheers  for  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma.  The  Delta  Kappa 
Epsilon  to  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  returns  her  most  cordial  salu- 
tation with  the  following  sentiment :  The  secret  societies  of 
American  colleges,  planets  of  the  same  educational  system,  may 
their  movement  rival  the  harmony  of  the  spheres." 

The  New  York  Convention  adjourned  to  meet  at  Richmond, 
Va.,  in  1862.  Owing  to  the  Civil  War  this  convention  did  not 
meet,  and  it  was  not  until  December  28-29,  1864,  that  the  Fra- 
ternity again  gathered  as  a  national  body.  This  convention 
\\a>>  held  at  Philadelphia  in  the  famous  Parlor  C  of  the  Conti- 
nental Hotel.  The  seven  Northern  chapters  were  all  present, 
the  eight  from  the  South  all  absent.  All  of  the  chapter  reports 
refer  to  the  havoc  wrought  by  the  war.  No  reference  is  made 
to  the  condition  of  any  of  the  Southern  chapters,  except  that 
of  Omicron.  As  to  that  chapter,  the  convention  was  in  receipt 
of  a  letter  from  Newton  William,  of  Delta,  stating  that  he  was 
Hhii  at  Centre  College,  but  that  no  member  of  Omicron  was  to 
be  found.      Apparently  no  oration  or  poem  was  delivered.

Avenue  Hotel,  New  York  City.     Eight  Northern  chapters  were 
represented,  Pi  at  Harvard  having  been  founded  since  the  last 
convention.     The  non-existence  of  the  eight  Southern  chapters 
was  by  this  time  undoubted,  and  the  convention  directed  that 
active  steps  be  taken  to  reorganize  them  wherever  possible.     At 
the  same  time  the  convention  chartered  a  new  chapter,  Rho,  at 
Austin  College,  Huntsville,  Texas,  an  ill-starred  attempt  which 
lasted  but  a  year.     This  convention  was  presided  over  by  Dr. 
Mitchell.     Neither  the  orator,  Daniel  S.  Tuttle,  of  Iota,  nor  the 
poet,  Clay  MacCauley,  of  Epsilon,  was  present.     The  Conven- 
tion of  1866  met  on  December  27-28  of  that  year  in  Philadel- 
phia.    The  eight  Northern  chapters  were  all  present  and  the 
Southern   chapters,  which  were  still   carried   on   the  rolls,   all 
absent,   including  the   Rho   Chapter.     Henry   L.   Bunstein,   of 
Gamma,  presided,  with  Robert  N.   Clark,  of  Alpha,  as  secre- 
tary.    It  was  reported  that  efforts  were  being  made  to  revive 
the  Nu  Chapter  at  Cumberland  University   and  the  Omicron 
Chapter  at  Centre  College,  but  apparently  nothing  was  doing. 
Resolutions  were  again  adopted  calling  for  the  reorganization 
of  the  Southern  chapters  and  the  convention  adjourned. 

A  year  later  the  convention  met  at  Harrisburg,  Pa.,  on 
December  31,  1867,  and  January  1,  1868,  under  the  presidency 
of  Louis  E.  McComas,  of  Epsilon,  with  John  C.  Sims,  of  Alpha, 
as  secretary.  The  convention,  while  attended  by  only  six  chap- 
ters, is  of  importance  in  that  it  directed  a  revision  of  the  Con- 
stitution, which,  when  adopted  the  following  year,  became  the 
basis  of  the  present  government  of  the  Fraternity.  The  usual 
oration  was  delivered  by  Henry  L.  Bunstein,  of  Gamma,  and  a 
poem  prepared  by  Henry  F.  King,  of  Epsilon,  was  read  by 
Horace  Bonham,  of  Gamma. 

The  Conventions  of  May  15,  1869,  and  December  22,  1869, 
both  held  at  Philadelphia,  mark  the  beginning  of  the  general 
Fraternity  as  it  now  exists  as  a  national  body.  At  these  con- 
ventions the  Constitution  which,  with  revisions,  is  still  in  force, 
was  adopted.  There  was  created  by  it  the  body  now  known  as 
the  Grand  Chapter,  which  has  met  each  year  since  then  and 
which  exercises  general  legislative  power  over  the  Fraternity. 
There  was  created  at  the  same  time  the  Executive  Board,  which, 


32  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

as  its  name  implies,  is  the  executive  body  of  the  Fraternity  be- 
tween the  sessions  of  the  Grand  Chapter.  The  second  of  these 
two  conventions  marked  the  erection  of  the  Sigma  Chapter  at 
Lehigh  University.  The  Fraternity  at  this  time,  geographic- 
ally speaking,  was  a  sectional  body,  consisting  of  five  chapters 
in  Pennsylvania,  one  in  New  Jersey  and  one  in  New  York.  Both 
the  Pi  and  Rho  chapters  had  passed  away  and  the  ante-bellum 
chapters  in  the  South  were  all  out  of  existence.  Iota,  at  Colum- 
bia, had  but  one  man  in  college  and  became  dormant  in  1870. 
National  fraternity  spirit  was  at  low  ebb  and  a  desire  to  remedy 
this  was  doubtless  the  reason  for  the  calling  of  a  general  con- 
vocation, the  first  of  several  which  have  been  since  held,  which 
met  at  Philadelphia  on  December  31,  1871.  Judge  James  D. 
Watters,  of  Epsilon,  presided,  and  the  historic  oration  and 
poem  were  revived,  the  former  being  delivered  by  Henry  Kyd 
Douglas,  of  Zeta,  and  the  latter  by  Horatio  C.  King,  of 
Epsilon. 

At  the  convention  held  at  Philadelphia,  January  9—10, 
1873,  called  the  "  fifth  "  under  the  new  Constitution,  but  in 
reality  the  fourteenth  actually  held,  Leroy  S.  Edwards  appeared 
from  Eta  Chapter,  the  first  Southern  delegate  since  the  war. 
Brother  Edwards  was  the  moving  spirit  in  the  reorganization 
of  Eta  on  September  26,  1872,  and  he  was  also  largely  instru- 
mental in  establishing  the  Tau  Chapter  at  Randolph-Macon 
College,  in  January,  1872,  and  the  Phi  Chapter  at  Richmond 
College,  in  January,  1873.  As  a  further  evidence  of  the  revived 
interest  in  the  Fraternity  there  had  been  established  on  July  8, 
1872,  the  first  chapter  in  the  Middle  West,  namely,  Upsilon 
Chapter  at  Northwestern  University,  which  was  fathered  by 
James  C.  Ernst,  of  Beta.  The  organization  of  the  first  Alumni 
Association,  located  in  New  York  City,  had  occurred  in  1869. 
In  order  to  encourage  such  organizations,  they  were  in  1870 
given  representation  in  the  Grand  Chapter,  but  this  was  re- 
pealed in  1871,  and  from  that  time  until  1901  alumni  chapters 
were  not  officially  recognized.  Following  upon  the  institution 
of  Upsilon,  the  Chi  Chapter  was  established  at  Racine  College, 
Wisconsin,  in  March,  1873,  mainly  through  the  efforts  of  Arch 
B.   Eldridge,  of  Beta,  and  John   M.   Dandy,  of  Upsilon.      It 


HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.       33 

lived,  however,  but  a  few  years,  owing  to  faculty  oppression. 

The  Second  General  Convocation,  which  was  held  at  Horti- 
cultural Hall,  in  Philadelphia,  June  30,  1876,  was  by  far  the 
largest  gathering  in  the  history  of  the  Fraternity  up  to  that 
time.  Col.  James  L.  Clark,  of  Eta,  acted  as  salutatorian. 
Henry  L.  Bunstein,  of  Gamma,  delivered  a  history  of  the  Fra- 
ternity. Col.  Horatio  C.  King,  of  Epsilon,  read  a  poem,  and 
the  oration  was  delivered  by  Hon.  E.  John  Ellis,  of  Theta. 
In  the  evening  an  elaborate  banquet  was  held  at  which  Dr. 
Mitchell,  the  founder  of  the  Fraternity,  acted  as  toastmaster. 
The  Grand  Chapter  met  at  the  same  time.  A  few  months  be- 
fore, Psi  Chapter  had  been  established  at  the  Long  Island 
Medical  College,  Brooklyn,  through  the  efforts  of  Gamma  Chap- 
ter. This  entrance  into  a  purely  professional  school  was  a 
mistake,  and  the  chapter  did  not  long  survive.  In  fact  the 
recent  energy  of  the  Fraternity  was  soon  expended,  for  1877 
recorded  the  extinction  of  both  Beta  and  Epsilon,  the  former 
because  of  the  wholesale  abolition  of  fraternities  at  Princeton, 
and  the  latter  from  lack  of  available  material.  The  only  en- 
couraging sign  was  that  Lambda  Chapter  at  North  Carolina 
had  arisen  from  the  ruins  of  the  war  and  was  again  in  a  flourish- 
ing condition,  although  existing  sub  rosa,  the  chapter  sending 
special  warning  to  the  other  chapters  never  to  address  communi- 
cations in  such  a  way  as  to  indicate  the  existence  of  the  chapter. 

During  the  latter  '70's,  Alpha,  Lambda  and  Upsilon  were 
the  most  flourishing  chapters ;  the  others  then  active,  Gamma, 
Delta,  Zeta,  Eta,  Sigma,  Tau,  Phi  and  Psi,  having  but  two  or 
three  men  each  in  their  respective  colleges.  The  falling  off  of 
interest  since  the  Convocation  of  1876  was  apparent  in  the  next 
one,  held  in  1879,  when  the  number  present  was  less  than  half  at 
that  of  1876.  So  general  was  the  discouraging  outlook  for  the 
Fraternity  nationally  that  no  convention  was  again  held  until 
January  20,  1882,  when  it  was  reported  that  Gamma  and  Psi 
were  each  reduced  to  one  member  in  college.  The  Grand  Chap- 
ter accordingly  withdrew  the  charter  of  Psi  that  year  and  that 
of  Gamma  the  following  year.  Zeta  Chapter,  which  had  had  a 
long  and  prosperous  existence,  was  also  in  dire  straits,  so  much 
so  that  at  the  Convention  of  January,  1882,  it  was  voted  to 


34  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

disband  the  chapter.  However,  local  brethren  in  Lancaster 
came  to  its  relief,  and  the  Executive  Board,  in  March  of  1882, 
by  what  was  apparently  a  stretch  of  its  constitutional  powers, 
decided  to  hold  in  abeyance  the  order  disbanding  Zeta,  with  the 
result  that  at  the  convention  held  on  December  29,  1882,  the 
dissolution  of  Zeta  was  repealed. 

Despite  these  adverse  circumstances  felt  so  generally 
throughout  the  chapters,  a  high  standard  of  membership  was 
maintained  by  all.  Several  struggled  along  with  but  two  or 
three  members,  preferring  the  risk  of  extinction  to  a  lowering 
of  the  standard  of  membership.  Epsilon  indeed  surrendered 
its  charter  for  this  reason,  and  Sigma  and  Phi  were  without  men 
in  college  for  a  few  years. 

The  Conventions  of  1882  mark  the  first  discussions  looking 
toward  the  establishment  of  a  Fraternity  magazine,  but  nothing 
seems  to  have  been  done  in  the  matter  until  1890,  as  will  be 
noted  later. 

The  Omega  Chapter  at  Haverford  College  was  founded  in 
1884,  the  Executive  Board  reporting  to  the  Grand  Chapter 
that  its  establishment  was  "  the  crowning  effort  of  the  year." 
Spasmodic  efforts  to  revive  dormant  chapters  came  to  a  head 
at  this  convention,  and  it  wras  resolved  that  Beta  and  Iota 
should  be  reorganized  by  the  Alpha,  Gamma  by  Sigma,  Epsilon 
by  Zeta  and  Phi  by  Tau.  The  only  result  was  the  revival  of 
Phi  in  the  following  year. 

In  1886,  the  need  of  a  Fraternity  magazine  was  again 
discussed,  and  the  Tau  Chapter  was  authorized  to  publish  a 
paper  in  the  interest  of  the  Fraternity.  Nothing,  however,  was 
done  until  the  session  of  the  Grand  Chapter  held  at  Norfolk, 
Virginia,  January  3,  1890.  This  convention,  while  small  in 
numbers,  was  in  many  respects  a  turning  point  in  the  Frater- 
nity's career  as  a  national  organization.  Delegates  were  pres- 
ent from  but  five  chapters,  Alpha,  Eta,  Lambda,  Phi  and  Omega, 
but  it  authorized  the  inauguration  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma 
Quarterly  and  elected  Stuart  McGuire,  of  Eta,  editor-in-chief. 
Dr.  McGuire  subsequently  declined,  and  George.  Gordon  Battle, 
of  Lambda,  was  substituted  in  his  place.  The  first  number  was 
published  in  New  York,  in  February,  1891.      Subsequent  issues 


HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.       35 

were  published  in  Philadelphia  regularly  until  1901,  when  it  was 
discontinued  and  superseded  by  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Nexvs 
Letter,  the  official  organ  at  the  present  time. 

At  this  convention  Lambda  Chapter  reported  that  it  had 
the  honor  to  possess  the  first  chapter  house  in  the  Fraternity. 
The  delegates  reported  the  house  as  a  "  beautiful  and  conven- 
ient chapter  house  which  was  built,  furnished  and  presented  to 
the  chapter  by  our  generous  alumni."  It  is  described  as  "  a 
building  about  thirty  by  forty  feet  and  is  painted  in  our  colors, 
but  the  outside  appearance  gives  but  a  slight  idea  of  the  con- 
venience and  beauty  of  its  interior.  Our  Assembly  Hall  is  a 
large  room,  which,  thanks  to  the  kindness  of  Frank  B.  Dancy, 
is  most  handsomely  and  appropriately  decorated.  On  the  ros- 
trum we  have  three  handsome  mahogany  chairs  with  old  gold 
cushions ;  a  handsome  Brussels  carpet  is  on  the  floor.  Our 
windows  have  lace  curtains  and  shades  with  Lambda  and  the 
skull  and  cross  bones  painted  on  them.  All  of  the  globes  of  the 
lamps  have  the  same  thing  painted  on  them;  all  of  us  are  con- 
stantly stimulated  to  still  greater  action  on  account  of  our  neat 
hall." 

The  Convention  of  1891  met  in  Philadelphia  on  January 
1st,  with  nine  chapters  represented,  the  largest  since  1860. 
The  loss  of  Omega  Chapter,  caused  by  prohibitive  faculty  legis- 
lation, was  offset  by  the  institution  of  Psi  at  Pennsylvania  State 
College,  which  was  accomplished  by  the  absorption  of  the  local 
chapter  of  the  Q.  T.  V.  Society.  In  1892  Rho  Chapter  was 
founded  at  the  University  of  Illinois. 

In  1893,  Anthony  Sambola,  of  Theta,  revived  the  Mu 
Chapter  at  Tulane,  and  the  Kappa  Chapter  at  Lake  Forest  was 
founded,  but  both,  together  with  the  youthful  Rho  Chapter, 
soon  succumbed,  chiefly  because  of  the  financial  panic  at  that 
time.  The  Fraternity  did  not  seem  to  realize  the  importance 
of  establishing  chapters  only  upon  a  firm  basis  so  as  to  assure 
their  permanency.  In  1894  the  Alpha  Alpha  Chapter  was 
founded  at  Washington  and  Lee  University  at  Lexington,  Va., 
.and  the  Epsilon  Chapter  at  Dickinson  was  revived  by  the  ab- 
sorption of  a  local  society  known  as  Alpha  Zeta  Phi,  which  had 
existed  successfully  at  that  institution  for  a  number  of  years. 


$6  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

In  the  following  year  the  Alpha  Beta  Chapter  at  Toronto  Uni- 
versity, the  only  chapter  organized  outside  the  territory  of  the 
United  States,  came  into  existence.  Practically  all  of  its  mem- 
bers, however,  failed  to  return  the  next  year  and  the  chapter's 
career  was  abortive.  The  charter  of  Lambda  was  finally  with- 
drawn with  great  regret  in  1896,  after  it  had  led  a  struggling 
existence  for  three  or  four  years.  Mu,  which  had  succumbed 
temporarily,  was  revived  in  1901,  and  has  since  continued  ac- 
tive. Rho  also  was  revived  in  1902  and  Iota  in  1904  under 
favorable  conditions  and  they  have  since  attained  high  rank  in 
their  respective  universities. 

It  will  thus  be  seen  that  from  1860  to  the  middle  of  the  last 
decade  of  the  century  the  Fraternity  suffered  from  a  lack  of 
cohesion  nationally,  occasional  periods  of  enthusiasm  and  ex- 
pansion being  succeeded  by  a  recurrence  of  apathy.  The  effect 
of  the  beginning  of  civil  war  in  the  country  in  1861  was  to 
deprive  the  Fraternity  at  one  blow  of  half  its  active  life.  From 
such  a  calamity  recovery  was  necessarily  prolonged.  The  won- 
der is,  not  that  a  long  period  of  national  inactivity  followed,  but 
that  the  Fraternity  survived  it  all.  It  is  a  powerful  testimonial 
to  the  loyalty  of  its  members  that  it  succeeded  eventually  in 
restoring  its  organic  unity.  The  national  lethargy  was  not, 
however,  reflected  in  the  several  chapters  individually.  During 
this  whole  period  Alpha  Chapter  maintained  its  historic  posi- 
tion as  the  leading  fraternity  at  the  University  of  Pennsylvania. 
Eta  Chapter  at  Virginia,  following  its  revival  after  the  war, 
together  with  the  Tau  and  Phi  chapters  in  the  same  date,  ob- 
tained members  of  the  highest  personnel,  as  did  Lambda  at 
North  Carolina.  In  the  West  the  Upsilon  Chapter  for  many 
years  maintained  an  isolated  existence  with  marked  success.  It 
was  not,  however,  until  1896  that  the  Fraternity  began  to  as- 
sume its  present  commanding  position  as  a  national  organiza- 
tion. Since  that  time  several  chapters  have  been  added  in  the 
leading  institutions  of  the  country  under  conditions  which  have 
assured  permanent  organizations.  The  result  has  been  a  mar- 
velous development  in  the  Fraternity  as  a  national  body.  It 
now  numbers  thirty-one  active  chapters,  all  of  which  are  strong 
in  their  respective  colleges  and  are  united  as  one  general  society.

HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.       37 

The  Executive  Board,  which  for  many  years  after  its  creation 
in  1869  met  at  irregular  intervals,  has  for  the  last  twenty-five 
years  held  regular  monthly  meetings  and  carries  on  an  enor- 
mous amount  of  executive  business  and  detail  throughout  the 
year. 

No  better  testimony  of  the  Fraternity's  strength  can  be 
found  than  in  the  enthusiastic  manner  with  which  its  Semi- 
centennial was  celebrated  in  Horticultural  Hall,  Philadelphia, 
on  October  17,  18  and  19,  1900.  Delegates  from  all  the  active 
chapters  and  several  hundred  alumni  assembled  from  all  parts 
of  the  country.  In  addition  to  the  routine  business  sessions  of 
the  Grand  Chapter  a  general  convocation  was  held  during  the 
convention.  This  was  presided  over  by  Grand  Alpha  J.  Hart- 
ley Merrick,  with  Charles  Hare  Hutchinson,  of  Alpha,  one  of 
the  two  then  surviving  founders  of  the  Fraternity,  as  honorary 
president.  Thomas  Lynch  Montgomery,  of  Alpha,  past  Grand 
Alpha,  delivered  an  historical  address ;  Russell  Duane,  of  Alpha, 
was  the  orator,  and  General  Horatio  C.  King,  of  Epsilon,  read 
a  poem.  On  the  18th  a  memorial  service  was  held  at  St.  Ste- 
phen's Church,  in  the  porch  of  which  edifice  are  buried  the  re- 
mains of  Dr.  Mitchell,  the  founder.  The  service  was  conducted 
with  great  impressiveness,  all  of  the  officiating  clergy  being 
members  of  the  Fraternity.  The  sermon  was  delivered  by  the 
Rev.  George  Woolsey  Hodge,  of  Alpha  Chapter.  On  the  eve- 
ning of  the  19th  the  Semi-Centennial  was  brought  to  a  close  with 
an  elaborate  banquet,  at  which  between  two  hundred  and  fifty 
and  three  hundred  Phi  Kaps  were  present,  the  Hon.  William  U. 
Hensel,  of  Zeta,  acting  as  toastmaster.  Toasts  were  responded 
to  by  Samuel  Dickson,  Esq.  (Alpha),  of  the  Philadelphia  Bar; 
Hon.  George  Glover  Crocker  (Pi),  chairman  of  the  Boston  Sub- 
way Commission  ;  Randal  Morgan,  Esq.  (Alpha),  vice-president 
of  the  United  Gas  Improvement  Company ;  Dr.  William  Draper 
Lewis  (Omega),  dean  of  the  Law  School  of  the  University  of 
Pennsylvania,  and  others. 

In  1901  the  Executive  Board  found  that  the  Phi  Kappa 
Sigma  Quarterly  was  not  fulfilling  its  proper  function  as  a  Fra- 
ternity magazine  and  accordingly  suspended  it,  and  instituted 
in  its  stead  the  publication  known  as  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma 


38  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

New*  Letter,  which  has  since  continued  as  the  official  organ  of 
the  Fraternity.  The  News  Letter  aims  to  present  a  succinct 
record  of  the  current  progress  of  the  Fraternity,  without  any 
attempt  to  pose  as  a  literary  magazine.  Its  circulation,  free 
of  cost  among  all  living  members,  has  proved  to  be  the  means  of 
awakening  and  solidifying  fraternal  loyalty  to  a  remarkable 
degree. 

At  its  Convention  at  Baltimore  in  1004,  the  Grand  Chapter 
instituted  the  officers  known  as  "  Chapters  Visitors  "  who  are 
appointed  by  the  Executive  Board,  one  from  each  chapter,  as 
overseers  of  their  chapters.  These  officers  are  selected  from 
among  the  alumni  of  the  Fraternity  and  are  required  to  make 
stated  visits  to  the  chapters  and  to  report  to  the  Executive 
Hoard  upon  the  conditions  found  existing.  By  this  means  the 
Executive  Board  is  put  in  possession  of  accurate  information 
concerning  each  chapter  from  the  point  of  view  of  the  graduate. 
The  convention  of  1907  held  in  New  York  authorized  the 
creation  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Endowment  Fund  for  the 
purpose  of  raising  money  to  buy  or  build  chapter  houses  to  be 
owned  by  the  General  Fraternity  for  the  benefit  of  the  chapters. 
Ilaseltine  Smith,  Alpha  '95,  was  made  chairman  of  the  fund  and 
subsequently  elected  to  the  newly  created  office  of  Grand  Epsi- 
lon.  This  position  lie  continued  to  hold  until  his  election  as 
Grand  Alpha  in  December,  1916.  He  continued  practically  in 
charge  of  the  fund  until  the  spring  of  1919  for  the  reason  that 
his  immediate  successor  as  Grand  Epsilon,  Benjamin  Lee,  2nd, 
enlisted  in  the  Naval  Aviation  service  shortly  after  his  election 
and  was  killed  while  flying  off  the  coast  of  England  in  the  fall 
of  1918.  During  his  management  of  the  office,  Brother  Smith 
raised  $22  586  in  cash,  together  with  considerable  additional 
sums  in  installment  subscriptions.  The  first  house  erected  with 
endowment  fund  money  was  that  of  Eta  Chapter  at  the  Univer- 
sity of  Virginia,  which  was  occupied  in  the  summer  of  1911. 
Subsequently  the  fund  took  over  the  equity  of  the  Alpha  Xi 
Chapter  in  its  house  at  Purdue  University  and  in  the  fall  of 
1917  purchased  a  home  for  Alpha  Pi  Chapter  at  the  University 
of  Chicago.      The  title  to  all  three  houses  stands  in  the  names  of 


HISTORY  OF  THE  GOVERNMENT  OF  THE  FRATERNITY.       39 

the  trustees  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Endowment  Fund.  The 
trustees  originally  appointed  were  General  Horatio  C.  King, 
Epsilon  '58 ;  Effingham  B.  Morris,  Alpha  '75,  President  of  the 
Girard  Trust  Company  of  Philadelphia ;  and  Claude  A.  Swan- 
son,  Tau  '85,  United  States  Senator  from  Virginia.  Upon  the 
death  of  General  King  in  1918,  Judge  Wells  M.  Cook,  Upsilon 
'95,  became  his  successor.  In  addition  to  these  three  houses, 
seventeen  houses  are  owned  by  various  chapters,  the  money  hav- 
ing been  raised  by  the  chapter  alumni.  All  of  the  remaining 
chapters  have  rented  houses  and  in  practically  all  cases  have 
building  funds.  A  fair  valuation  of  all  houses  owned  is  $625,- 
750,  in  which  the  Fraternity's  equity  amounts  to  $412,350. 

From  the  early  '80's  until  1914,  the  Grand  Chapter  met 
every  year,  usually  in  December.  The  convention  in  the  year 
last  named  was  held  under  the  auspices  of  Alpha  Iota  Chapter 
at  Nashville,  Tenn.  This  was  the  first  convention  held  in  the 
far  South.  This  session  passed  an  amendment  to  the  constitu- 
tion, providing  that  the  Grand  Chapter  should  meet  "  annually 
or  otherwise  "  as  might  be  determined  from  time  to  time.  Ac- 
cordingly the  following  year  the  convention  was  held  on  August 
26th  and  27th,  1915,  in  San  Francisco,  during  the  Panama- 
Pacific  Exhibition.  Notwithstanding  the  long  distance  from 
the  geographical  center  of  the  Fraternity,  the  convention  was 
attended  by  a  large  number  of  delegates  and  alumni  from  the 
East  and  South.  Up  to  this  time  the  various  officers  of  the 
Executive  Board  had  conducted  the  Fraternity's  business  from 
their  private  offices.  The  volume  of  business  had  increased  to 
such  an  extent  that  in  the  case  of  three  or  four  of  the  officers  it 
was  no  longer  practicable  to  continue  in  this  manner.  The 
Grand  Chapter  therefore  authorized  the  established  of  a  Fra- 
ternity office,  located  in  Philadelphia,  with  the  employment  of 
such  clerical  help  as  would  be  necessary  to  maintain  the  office 
properly.  This  has  proven  of  great  practical  benefit.  All  of 
the  business  records  of  the  Fraternity  are  now  located  in  this 
office  and  most  of  the  correspondence  is  carried  on  from  there. 

The  next  convention  was  held  at  Chicago,  111.,  on  Decem- 
ber 30th  and  31st,  1916,  and  in  attendance  surpassed  all  previ-

ous  sessions.  As  the  United  States  entered  the  world  war  in 
April,  1917,  it  was  determined  to  hold  no  convention  until  after 
the  war.  The  Executive  Board,  anticipating  the  effect  of  the 
war  upon  the  undergraduate  chapters,  took  steps  in  the  spring 
of  1917  to  collect  data  concerning  the  exact  status  of  the  real 
estate  and  general  business  condition  of  each  of  the  chapters 
and  where  necessary  saw  to  it  that  no  chapter  suffered  by  rea- 
son of  the  reduction  in  its  membership.  During  the  winter  of 
1917  and  1918  all  of  the  chapters  continued  in  operation,  none, 
however,  with  more  than  fifty  per  cent,  of  normal  membership 
and  many  with  but  two  or  three  members  in  attendance,  al- 
though many  of  the  undergraduates  were  under  the  original 
draft  age.  From  the  records  which  the  Fraternity  has  gath- 
ered and  which  are  believed  to  be  as  nearly  correct  as  possible, 
twenty-four  hundred  and  eighty-six  members  entered  the  mili- 
tary or  naval  service  or  enlisted  in  one  of  the  auxiliary  organi- 
zations, such  as  the  Red  Cross  or  the  "  Y,"  while  many  others 
worked  as  civilians  at  some  form  of  war  activity.  As  far  as  is 
known,  forty-two  members  gave  up  their  lives  in  the  service  of 
their  country.  The  Fraternity  is  justly  proud  of  the  record 
of  its  members  in  the  war. 

The  fall  of  1918  saw  the  colleges  operating  under  the  regu- 
lations of  the  Student  Army  Training  Corps.  Dormitories 
and  fraternity  houses  were  converted  into  barracks  or  used  for 
other  purposes  in  connection  with  the  military  occupation.  The 
question  at  once  arose  as  to  the  situation  of  the  fraternities. 
The  original  instructions  issued  from  the  War  Department  at 
Washington  were  somewhat  ambiguous  and  led  to  the  impres- 
sion in  many  places  that  the  fraternities  were  not  to  be  allowed 
to  continue  their  existence  by  the  initiation  of  new  members. 
The  general  officers  of  the  Fraternity  promptly  took  up  the 
matter  with  the  authorities  in  Washington,  as  was  also  done  by 
officers  of  other  fraternities,  and  a  supplemental  order  was 
issued  showing  that  while  the  usual  social  activities  of  the  fra- 
ternities would  not  be  permitted  there  was  no  objection  to  the 
maintenance  of  the  organizations  by  the  initiation  of  new  mem- 
bers.  The  cessation  of  hostilities  in  November,  1918,  and  the 
abandonment   of   the   Student   Army    Training   Corps    shortly

thereafter  removed  the  question  as  to  the  status  of  the  frater- 
nities, although  in  many  instances  the  return  to  normal  condi- 
tions was  not  brought  about  until  the  fall  of  1919. 

During  the  last  week  of  June,  1919,  the  Grand  Chapter 
again  met  at  Atlantic  City,  N.  J.  Elaborate  plans  were  laid 
to  make  this  convention  a  grand  rally  of  undergraduates  and 
alumni  alike  in  order  to  restore  the  morale  interrupted  by  the 
war  and  to  start  the  chapters  enthusiastically  upon  the  opening 
of  colleges  in  the  fall.  The  convention  was  largely  attended, 
was  addressed  by  various  alumni,  including  members  who  had 
seen  service  overseas  and  in  all  respects  was  most  successful. 

In  conclusion,  the  present  activities  of  the  Fraternity  as  a 
national  organization  may  be  summarized  as  follows : 

I.  The  Grand  Chapter,  consisting  of  three  delegates  from 
each  chapter  and  one  delegate  from  each  alumni  chapter,  under 
the  presidency  of  the  Grand  Alpha.  The  Executive  Board  and 
the  Chapter  Visitors  collectively  constitute  additional  voting 
units  on  votes  which  are  taken  by  chapters.  The  Grand  Chap- 
ter has  general  legislative  power  over  the  Fraternity  subject  to 
the  provisions  of  the  Constitution.  The  Constitution,  By-Laws 
and  Acts  of  the  Grand  Chapter  are  collected  in  printed  form 
and  are  in  the  possession  of  each  chapter. 

II.  The  Executive  Board,  which  consists  of  the  Grand 
Officers  of  the  Grand  Chapter,  is  the  working  executive  of  the 
Grand  Chapter  between  the  sessions.  The  Board  is  presided 
over  by  the  Grand  Alpha  and  meets  monthly,  carrying  into 
execution  an  enormous  amount  of  governmental  detail. 

III.  The  offices  of  the  Grand  Beta  and  the  Grand  Pi,  who 
supervise  the  chapter  visitor  system.  The  chapters  are  divided 
into  two  groups,  over  one  of  which  the  Grand  Beta  and  over  the 
other  the  Grand  Pi  has  charge,  directing  the  work  of  the  respec- 
tive Chapter  Visitors. 

IV.  The  office  of  the  Grand  Sigma,  who  is  the  secretary  of 
the  Executive  Board  and  of  the  Grand  Chapter,  performing  the 
varied  duties  which  customarily  belong  to  such  an  office. 

V.  The  office  of  the  Grand  Tau,  who  collects  and  disburses 
the  finances  of  the  Fraternity.  These  finances  are  raised  by  a 
stated  per  capita  tax  upon  all  of  the  chapters.     The  funds  are

used  in  paying  the  expenses  of  the  Grand  Officers  and  of  one 
delegate  from  each  chapter  to  the  Grand  Chapter;  for  the  publi- 
cation of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  News  Letter,  which  is  sent  free 
to  all  living  members;  for  the  puhlication  of  a  pocket  directory 
of  living  members,  which  is  issued  in  every  alternate  year,  and 
for  various  current  miscellaneous  expenses. 

VI.  The  office  of  the  Grand  Upsilon,  who  is  the  editor  of 
the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  News  Letter,  of  'the  pocket  directory  and 
of  the  general  Register.  The  duties  of  the  Grand  Upsilon  entail 
the  keeping  of  an  accurate  card  catalogue  of  the  names  and 
addresses  of  all  living  members  of  the  Fraternity. 

VII.  The  office  of  the  Grand  Epsilon,  who  is  the  head  of 
the  Endowment  Fund  through  which  money  is  raised  to  finance 
the  erection  of  houses  for  the  chapters,  to  be  owned  by  the 
chapters  or  by  the  general  Fraternity  for  their  use.

History  of  Alpha  Chapter 

A  complete  history  of  Alpha  Chapter  must  of  necessity 
include,  to  a  certain  extent,  a  history  of  the  Fraternity  itself, 
but  as  that  appears  elsewhere  in  this  Register  only  a  brief 
summary  can  be  here  given  of  Alpha's  part  in  the  building  up 
of  our  national  organization. 

The  early  papers  left  by  Dr.  Mitchell  in  his  handwriting 
indicate  that  he  first  conceived  the  idea  of  establishing  a  frater- 
nity at  the  University  of  Pennsylvania  on  the  16th  of  August, 
1850,  a  date  that  is  memorable  in  the  annals  of  Alpha  Chapter, 
not  only  from  this  fact,  but  because  August  16th  was,  by  a 
strange  coincidence,  the  date  both  of  the  birth  and  death  of  the 
founder. 

It  was  with  the  idea  of  a  rivalry  with  Delta  Phi,  then  the 
only  college  fraternity  established  at  Pennsylvania,  when  Dr. 
Mitchell,  with  that  energy  and  enthusiasm  which  spine  of  us  still 
remember,  took  into  his  confidence  a  few  intimate  classmates, 
and  as  the  result  of  a  conversation  held  in  Professor  Vethake's 
room  at  the  University,  then  located  in  Ninth  Street,  Phi  Kappa 
Sigma,  the  only  fraternity  founded  at  the  University  of  Penn- 
sylvania, was  organized  on  the  19th  day  of  October,  1850.  The 
founders  were  Samuel  Brown  Wylie  Mitchell,  James  Bayard 
Hodge,  Alfred  Victor  Du  Pont,  Charles  Hare  Hutchinson,  John 
Thorn  Stone,  Duane  Williams  and  Andrew  Adams  Ripka. 
These  seven  met  at  the  house  of  James  Bayard  Hodge,  at  the 
northwest  corner  of  Ninth  and  Walnut  Streets,  and  organized 
by  calling  him  to  the  chair.  A  constitution  and  by-laws  were 
then  presented  and  adopted,  having  been  previously  drafted  by 
a  committee  which  met  at  Duane  Williams'  house,  on  the  north 
side  of  Walnut  Street,  between  Eighth  and  Ninth  Streets,  next 
door  to  what  is  now  the  Casino.  "  An  order  of  initiation  was 
then  framed,  the  badge  adopted,  and  the  life  of  the  Fraternity 
begun.

The  greater  part  of  the  work,  and  the  design  of  the  badge, 
was  Dr.  Mitchell's ;  he  was  the  soul  and  spirit  of  the  movement 
and  had  a  natural  ability  for  organization ;  and,  although  there 
were  other  societies  of  which  he  was  founder,  he  never  allowed 
any  of  them  to  interfere  with  his  love  for  the  Fraternity.  The 
early  development  of  the  order  is  largely  attributable  to  his 
fostering  care  and  effort  in  its  behalf.  His  charm  of  manner 
and  great  earnestness  of  purpose  made  him  always  desired  and 
conspicuous. 

The  Fraternity  began  at  once  to  flourish,  when  shortly 
after,  in  December,  Hodge  died  of  scarlet  fever,  and  this  sad 
event  cast  a  gloom  over  the  others.  Notwithstanding  this,  the 
Fraternity  grew  rapidly.  From  accounts,  for  the  records  say 
nothing  about  it,  they  had  no  regular  place  for  meetings  for 
some  time,  but  held  them  either  at  each  other's  houses  or  at 
some  convenient  hotel  or  restaurant.  They  finally  secured 
rooms  in  a  house  on  the  east  side  of  Tenth  Street  below  South. 
This  was  not  a  convenient  locality,  and  the  premises  were  shortly 
vacated  on  account  of  a  dispute  between  the  landlord  and  the 
tenant,  as  the  members  of  the  Fraternity,  being  subtenants  of 
the  latter,  became  disagreeably  connected  as  witnesses  in  a  law- 
suit. 

From  here  rooms  were  rented  in  a  house  which  stood  on 
the  northeast  corner  of  Eighth  and  Walnut  Streets.  While 
here  the  faculty  suddenly  became  aware  of  the  existence  of  the 
organization  and  were  alarmed  lest  the  nefarious  schemes  and 
practics,  which  they  supposed  were  being  carried  on  under  cover 
of  secrecy,  should  injure  the  reputation  of  the  University. 
Threats  of  expulsion  were  made  and  the  parents  and  guardians 
of  the  students  were  written  to  and  the  members  summoned  to 
attend  in  the  faculty  room  and  answer  for  themselves.  When 
Dr.  Mitchell  was  summoned,  the  Provost  asked  him,  on  pointing 
to  his  badge,  "  Why  do  you  wear  that  piratical  ensign?  "  As 
one  of  the  members  of  that  period  has  said,  "  So  far  as  concerned 
the  treatment  of  undergraduates,  the  order  of  the  day  was 
repression,  restriction  of  liberty  and  enforced  obedience  to  cast- 
iron  rules.  The  faculty  seemed  to  have  set  their  faces  against 
everything  desired  by  the  students.     Too  much  afraid  of  inno- 


HISTORY  OF  ALPHA  CHAPTER.  49 

vations,  they  fought  against  changes  at  a  time  when  any  de- 
parture from  the  old  habit  would  have  been  an  advance  in  the 
right  direction.     The  trustees  followed  in  the  same  ruts." 

A  printed  circular  was  sent  to  all  the  parents  and  guard- 
ians of  the  students  by  the  faculty  and  trustees,  warning  them 
against  the  pernicious  influence  and  the  dire  results  that  would 
ensue  from  allowing  their  sons  to  join  secret  societies. 

This  opposition  only  further  inspired  the  efforts  of  the 
members  to  add  to  their  number.  Dr.  Mitchell  was  a  man  of 
indomitable  will  and  energy,  and  opposition  on  the  part  of  the 
college  authorities  only  had  the  effect  of  giving  greater  impetus 
to  the  cause. 

In  1852  the  last  member  of  the  academic  department  had 
graduated  and  the  only  connection  that  was  left  with  the  Uni- 
versity was  three  members  of  the  medical  department.  For 
nearly  a  year  the  existence  of  the  order  was  precarious.  Only 
medical  students  composed  the  membership,  and  many  of  them 
ceased  to  give  much  of  their  attention  to  the  interests  of  the 
society.  But  here  again  Dr.  Mitchell  came  to  the  rescue,  and 
he,  with  a  few  of  those  who  remained  steadfast  to  the  cause, 
initiated  the  next  year,  on  the  23d  of  April,  1853,  Henry  Boyd 
McKeen,  for  the  purpose  of  founding  the  Beta  Chapter  at 
Princeton  College,  which  took  root  immediately  and  soon  grew 
into  a  large  and  flourishing  branch  of  the  parent  stem ;  and  on 
the  20th  of  December  following,  the  Gamma  Chapter  at  La- 
fayette College  was  founded  by  Stacy  G.  Potts,  of  the  Beta 
Chapter.  Dr.  Mitchell's  connection  with  the  medical  profession 
brought  him  almost  solely  at  this  time  in  contact  with  students 
of  the  Medical  Department  of  the  University,  and  by  reason  of 
this  the  members  were  wholly  initiated  from  that  department. 
On  the  appointment  of  Dr.  Mitchell  to  the  staff  of  the  Phila- 
delphia Hospital  many  meetings  of  the  Fraternity  were  held  in 
his  rooms  at  that  institution,  for  now  no  hall  was  rented  for  the 
use  of  the  chapter.  During  the  year  following,  on  the  5th  of 
June,  the  Delta  Chapter  at  Jefferson  College,  Canonsburg,  Pa., 
was  enrolled  among  the  list  of  chapters. 

Thus  affairs  ran  on  until  the  17th  of  January,  1855,  when 
six  members  of  the  college  department  were  initiated  at  Druids 


5o  phi  Kappa  sigma  fraternity. 

Hall,  on  Fifth  Street,  corner  of  Adelphi.  These  were  Robert 
H.  McGrath,  Charles  E.  Hackley,  James  Devereux,  Samuel 
Dickson,  J.  M.  McGrath  and  Alexander  W.  Mitchell.  This 
initiation  was  conducted  by  Dr.  Mitchell,  William  Cook,  Morris 
J.  Asch  and  William  McCalla  McKecn  with  great  ceremony. 

From  this  the  Fraternity  took  on  a  new  existence  with  these 
six  members  of  the  collegiate  department,  and  with  the  careful 
nursing  of  the  founder,  Dr.  Mitchell,  it  began  to  grow  rapidly. 
Its  previous  precarious  life  was  now  a  thing  of  the  past,  and  it 
started  with  renewed  vigor  on  its  career.  The  first  four  meet- 
ings after  this  reorganization  were  held  in  Phoenix  Hall,  Zane 
Street  above  Seventh  Street.  On  the  10th  of  April,  when  the 
lodge  of  the  chapter  was  located  in  the  two  front  rooms,  fourth 
story,  of  No.  42  South  Eighth  Street,  four  members  were  initi- 
ated —  Henry  A.  du  Pont,  C.  E.  Lamotte,  William  D.  Stuart 
and  Edward  S.  Whelen.  These  rooms  were  leased  to  Brother 
R.  M.  McGrath  by  Victor  Reboul,  a  shoemaker,  with  the  pro- 
viso "  that  the  premises  should  not  be  used  in  any  other  manner 
than  as  a  quiet  society." 

The  first  minutes  of  which  there  is  any  record  began  25th 
of  June,  1855,  and  are  recorded  in  a  book  mostly  in  Dr.  Mitch- 
ell's handwriting.  On  the  10th  of  January,  1856,  the  rooms  on 
the  third  story  of  the  same  building  were  taken,  where  a  few 
meetings  were  held.  First  of  March,  1856,  the  chapter  moved 
into  two  large  rooms  with  large  middle  doors  on  the  ground  floor 
of  No.  57  George  (now  Sansom)  Street  above  Eleventh  Street, 
next  to  Ashmead's  Printing  House.  These  rooms  were  hand- 
somely fitted  up. 

It  was  during  March  of  1857  that  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma 
Magazine  was  started,  and  an  unusually  full  attendance  was 
had  at  the  meeting  when  the  first  production  of  that  paper  was 
read  by  Brother  Pechin,  "  causing  an  amount  of  satisfaction 
not  expected."  It  was  issued  monthly.  The  front  covers  were 
embellished  in  pen  and  ink  and  water  color  drawings  of  various 
designs,  with  the  symbols  of  the  Fraternity.  This  was  the  work 
either  of  C.  A.  McCall  or  James  Harrison  Lambdin,  the  latter 
being  an  artist  of  no  mean  ability,  and  who  painted  a  skull  and 
bones  resting  on  a  book  which  he  presented  to  the  chapter  and 


HISTORY  OF  ALPHA  CHAPTER.  51 

which  now  hangs  in  the  chapter  house  and  is  one  of  the  most 
cherished  treasures.  The  magazine  always  had  an  editorial,  a 
summary  of  the  news  of  the  different  chapters  condensed  from 
the  correspondence  of  the  preceding  month,  one  or  two  articles 
and  a  poem  or  two.     It  was  all  in  manuscript. 

On  May  16,  1859,  the  chapter  moved  from  this  locality  to 
the  second  floor  back  of  the  building  at  the  northeast  corner  of 
Tenth  and  Walnut  Streets,  which  was  reported  by  the  Alpha 
of  the  chapter  in  his  report  to  be  inconvenient  and  the  stay 
only  intended  to  be  temporary.  In  the  fall  of  1859  it  removed 
to  the  southwest  corner  of  Eighth  and  Sansom  Streets,  third 
floor,  into  very  pleasant  and  commodious  rooms,  in  which  the 
chapter  was  better  situated  than  ever  before.  It  was  here  that, 
on  the  19th  of  October,  I860,  the  tenth  anniversary  of  the 
founding  of  the  Fraternity  was  celebrated.  The  Alpha  in  his 
report  congratulated  the  chapter  upon  the  results  achieved  by 
the  indefatigable  efforts  of  that  valuable  officer  ■ —  the  Tau. 
"  The  comforts  we  are  now  enjoying,  the  adornments  and  con- 
veniences of  our  hall,  the  quiet  conscience  (as  we  find  ourselves 
almost  relieved  from  debt)  are  all  due  to  his  alchemical  powers 
of  converting  promises  into  ready  cash." 

At  the  outbreak  of  the  war  from  the  early  part  of  1861 
the  chapter  was  seriously  broken  up  by  reason  of  her  members 
going  to  the  front ;  thirty  members  of  Alpha  Chapter  entered' 
the  service.  No  minutes  of  the  chapter  appear  between  the 
16th  of  April,  1861,  to  16th  of  November,  1863.  They  had  no 
hall  until  1862,  when  a  few  members  attended  meetings  at  207 
South  Sixth  Street,  and  for  a  time  all  interest  was  given  up 
and  the  prospects  were  indeed  gloomy.  In  October  of  this  year 
the  chapter  had  only  one  member  with  whom  to  begin  the 
session,  with  the  popular  notion  that  the  Fraternity  was  entirely 
defunct.  During  this  exciting  period  a  correspondence  was, 
however,  kept  up  by  Brother  R.  II.  McGrath,  the  Upsilon,  with 
a  number  of  the  chapters,  and  the  Fraternity  was  kept  alive  by 
him,  the  only  effective  officer  left  to  carry  on  the  work  of  the 
Fraternity.  Many  letters  were  written  and  received  by  him 
to  and  from  the  field  of  battle,  and  from  both  sides  in  the  con- 
flict.     Many  acts  of  kindness  and  brotherly  affection  towards 


52  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

each  other  demonstrated  the  efficacy  of  the  strong  ties  that 
bound  together  the  members  of  Phi  Kappa  Sigma. 

Those  of  the  chapter  who  remained  in  Philadelphia  during 
this  period  hearing  that  one  or  more  of  the  Southern  members 
were  prisoners  at  Fort  Delaware  and  in  very  destitute  circum- 
stances, made  up  a  box  of  clothing,  eatables,  etc.,  and  sent  them 
forward.  Months  afterward  there  were  received  through  the 
mails  on  a  piece  of  common  brown  wrapping  paper  a  few  lines 
(signed  by  Brother  Anthony  Sambola)  stating  that  some  of 
the  Southern  brethren  in  the  Confederate  Army  had  heard  of 
this  action,  and  that  if  they  knew  of  any  Phi  Kaps  in  Southern 
prisons  and  would  advise  them,  ever}r  effort  would  be  made  to 
render  their  situation  as  tolerable  as  their  scanty  means  would 
permit.  This  little  incident  spoke  volumes  in  behalf  of  Frater- 
nity combination  and  work. 

Subsequently  rooms  were  rented  at  207  South  Sixth  Street, 
and  in  the  early  part  of  1864*  the  meeting  rooms  of  the  chapter 
were  located  at  Sixth  and  Walnut  Streets  (southeast  corner, 
third-story  front  room).  At  this  time  the  chapter  was  in  the 
flush  of  success,  having  taken  in  seven  men  from  the  Depart- 
ment of  Arts  in  the  different  classes.  Meetings  were  now  held 
after  the  time-honored  custom. 

It  was  here  that  a  notable  entertainment  was  given  to  the 
"  Orphan  Chapter,"  a  curious  abnormal  growth  of  our  Frater- 
nity. This  chapter  was  composed  of  a  few  men  who  had  casu- 
ally found  themselves  in  Baltimore  together  at  the  end  of  the 
war,  and  no  two  of  them  from  the  same  chapter.  The  badge 
brought  them  together,  however,  and  the  "  Orphans  "  did  us 
great  credit  during  their  brief  career. 

From  Sixth  and  Walnut  Streets  the  chapter  again  moved 
in  January,  1867,  to  the  third  floor  of  926  Chestnut  Street, 
located  directly  opposite  to  the  abode  of  the  Delta  Psi  Frater- 
nity. These  rooms  were  rented  from  Fonteneau  &  Salles,  but 
were  given  up  in  June,  1868.  No  minutes  appear  to  have  been 
kept  between  December,  1867,  and  March,  1868.  During  this 
period  initiations  were  held  mostly  at  the  house  of  Brother  John 
Mercer  McCall  in  DeLancey  Place.  The  chapter  appears  to 
have  been  at  low  ebb  at  this  period,  but  a  room  was  rented  on 


HISTORY  OF  ALPHA  CHAPTER.  53 

the  fourth  floor  of  1017  Walnut  Street  about  December  1,  1870. 
This  hall  was  quite  large,  being  18  by  60  feet.  From  1867  to 
the  latter  part  of  1874  the  chapter  was  domiciled  in  the  third 
floor  of  the  southeast  corner  of  Tenth  and  Chestnut  Streets. 

In  November  of  1874  the  chapter  again  moved  to  the  third 
floor  of  1343  Chestnut  Street,  next  door  to  a  then  famous 
saloon  known  as  "  Finelli's,"  and  where  the  Liberty  building 
now  stands. 

In  those  days  the  Phi  Kaps  dominated  all  the  organizations 
of  the  classes  from  1873  to  1879,  and  as  a  consequence  the 
College  Boat  Club  and  the  Athletic  Association  may  be  said  to 
have  had  their  origin  in  Alpha  Chapter,  because  for  several 
years  in  the  early  struggles  of  those  helps  to  college  life  the 
officers  and  directors  were  mainly  from  our  Fraternity.  We 
worked  well  together  for  the  common  good  of  the  University, 
and  the  result  has  shown  the  foundations  to  have  been  well  laid. 
In  1877  the  chapter  moved  to  the  third  floor  southeast  corner 
of  Chestnut  and  Juniper  Streets,  where  the  uptown  office  of  the 
Pennsylvania  Company  now  stands.  In  1879  Dr.  Mitchell,  the 
founder,  died  and  left  us  the  heavy  oak  chairs  and  sofa  now  in 
the  present  house,  with  other  mementoes.  A  memorial  meeting 
was  held  upon  the  occasion  of  the  doctor's  death  in  these  rooms, 
the  proceedings  of  which  were  printed  and  are  among  our  ar- 
chives. 

It  is  a  pleasure  to  record  that  the  first  official  recognition 
of  a  college  fraternity  at  Pennsylvania  was  the  acceptance  by 
the  trustees  in  1887  of  a  fund  raised"!)  y  the  Alpha  Chapter  to 
establish  a  prize  to  be  known  as  "  Prize  established  by  the  Phi 
Kappa  Sigma  Fraternity  in  honor  of  its  founder,  Samuel 
Brown  Wylie  Mitchell." 

In  the  autumn  of  1893,  the  rooms  were  on  the  second  floor 
of  the  southwest  corner  of  13th  and  Walnut  Streets,  which 
rooms  were  occupied  until  1896  when  the  Chapter  purchased  a 
property  at  3537  Locust  Street. 

This  moving  of  the  chapter's  quarters  to  West  Philadel- 
phia, opposite  the  University  Campus,  is  significant  of  the  closer 
alliance  of  chapter  and  University  interests  which  has  grown 
steadily. 


54  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

Though  the  moving  to  S537  Locust  Street  was  a  long  step 
in  advance  from  the  rooms  at  153th  and  Walnut,  by  1905  it  had 
become  evident  that  larger  quarters  must  be  obtained. 

With  this  end  in  view  and  due  to  the  untiring  energy  and 
unflagging  enthusiasm  of  the  committee  in  charge  a  fund  was 
raised  for  the  purchase  of  the  two  small  properties  between 
:>.">:>7  Locust  and  the  corner  of  36th  and  Locust  Streets.  This 
gave  the  chapter  a  building  site  at  least  the  equal  of  any  other 
chapter  on  the  campus  and  on  this  site  the  present  chapter 
house  was  built. 

The  raising  of  the  funds  for  the  erection  of  the  present 
chapter  house  on  the  corner  of  36th  and  Locust  was  remark- 
able in  that  it  made  a  record  not  only  for  the  total  amount  of 
subscriptions  but  also  the  number  of  new  subscriptions. 

The  present  chapter  house  was  completed  in  May,  1911, 
and  celebrated  with  a  dinner  that  will  be  vividly  remembered  by 
all  that  were  fortunate  enough  to  be  able  to  attend. 

The  history  of  the  Alpha  Chapter  has  been  closely  bound 
with  that  of  the  history  of  the  University.  It  seems  fitting  to 
mention  that  it  was  under  the  leadership  of  members  of  Alpha 
Chapter  that  plans  for  an  inter-fraternity  agreement  were  com- 
pleted. 

There  is  comparatively  little  to  note  in  the  history  of  the 
chapter  from  the  time  of  occupancy  in  the  new  chapter  house 
until  the  entrance  of  the  United  States  in  the  World  War  in 
1917.  The  new  chapter  house  was  of  course  a  great  assistance 
in  enabling  the  chapter  to  maintain  its  strong  position  as  a 
leader  at  the  University-. 

In  a  portion  of  this  register  will  be  found  a  complete 
record  of  the  activities  of  the  members  of  the  Alpha  Chapter 
in  the  World  War.  In  this  place,  it  seems  appropriate  to  give 
a  short  resume  of  the  difficulties  that  the  chapter  encountered 
and  the  way  these  difficulties  were  surmounted.  By  the  fall  of 
1917,  the  membership  of  the  chapter  was  seriously  depleted  by 
enlistments  in  various  branches  of  the  service.  The  same  was 
true  of  mo>t  of  the  chapters  at  the  University.  In  spite  of  the 
depletion  in  members,  the  chapter  was  able  to  maintain  its  high 
standard  due  principally  to  an  unusual  degree  of  support  from 


HISTORY  OF  ALPHA  CHAPTER.  55 

the  Alumni.  At  the  end  of  the  college  year,  in  June,  1918,  the 
active  Alpha  Chapter  consisted  of  three  men,  all  of  whom  were 
in  the  Medical  School. 

Prior  to  the  time  that  the  college  would  have  opened  in 
September,  1918,  the  University  was  taken  over  by  the  War 
Department  for  the  establishment  of  a  Students'  Army  Train- 
ing Corps  Unit.  The  Chapter  House  was  also  taken  over  as 
a  barracks,  and  as  high  as  135  men  were  quartered  therein  dur- 
ing the  continuation  of  the  Students'  Army  Training  Corps. 

After  the  signing  of  the  armistice  and  the  demobilization 
of  the  Students'  Army  Training  Corps,  the  house  was  returned 
to  the  chapter. 

If  it  had  not  been  for  the  interest  and  the  support  of  the 
alumni,  the  chapter  would  have  been  in  serious  difficulty.  As 
it  was,  with  the  aid  of  the  men  who  had  been  discharged  from 
the  service,  and  the  aid  and  interest  of  the  alumni,  the  chapter 
was  able  to  double  its  membership  between  January  and  June, 
1919. 

During  the  World  War,  five  of  Alpha  Chapter  members 
gave  their  lives.  In  memory  of  this,  a  fund  has  been  raised, 
known  as  the  Alpha  Chapter  Memorial  Fund,  for  the  purpose 
of  paying  off  the  mortgage.  Response  to  this  fund,  just  as  in 
the  case  of  the  response  to  the  other  for  the  building  of  the 
house,  was  again  characterized  by  the  large  number  of  new  sub- 
scriptions.

HENRY  BOYD  McKEEN 


History  of  Beta  Chapter 

The  details  of  the  history  of  the  Beta  Chapter  are  in- 
volved in  the  utmost  obscurity,  owing  to  the  fact  that  at  the 
time  of  the  creation  of  the  chapter  at  Princeton  its  affairs 
had  to  be  conducted  with  the  greatest  secrecy  and  care  in 
order  to  keep  the  existence  of  the  chapter  unknown  to  the 
college  authorities  on  account  of  the  antagonistic  attitude  of 
the  faculty  to  such  organizations.  The  chapter  was  organized 
through  the  efforts  of  Dr.  Mitchell,  the  founder,  who  took  the 
first  step  towards  the  expansion  of  the  Fraternity  by  initiating 
Henry  Boyd  McKeen  for  the  purpose  of  founding  the  Beta 
Chapter  at  Princeton  College,  which  was  accordingly  done  on 
the  23d  of  April,  1853. 

In  the  early  part  of  1856  the  chapter  had  rooms  located 
about  a  mile  distant  from  the  town,  but  this  fact  soon  became 
known,  and  in  June,  1857,  the  president  made  the  proposition 
to  the  members  that  if  they  would  surrender  the  names  of  those 
composing  the  chapter,  and  assure  him  of  their  having  dis- 
banded, he  would  allow  them  to  return  to  the  college  at  the  next 
session. 

This  they  did  most  piously  and  were  afterwards  at  ease  in 
full  enjoyment  of  their  privileges  as  members  of  the  Beta. 
Great  secrecy  was  enjoined1  on  the  other  chapters  as  to  their 
existence.  In  1864  Dr.  McLean,  the  president,  procured  a  list 
of  all  fraternities  at  Princeton  and  threatened  to  expel  all  who 
did  not  before  a  given  time  give  up  all  connections  with  them. 
A  committee  was  appointed  by  Beta  to  confer  with  the  Alpha 
Chapter  as  to  the  best  course  to  pursue  under  these  circum- 
stances. They  committed  their  charters  and  papers  to  the 
Alpha's  care  until  the  storm  should  blow  over.  The  other 
chapters  were  requested  not  to  correspond.  Individual  connec- 
tion could  not  be  broken,  but  as  an  organized  chapter  they  could 
not  exist.

No  records  of  this  chapter  appear  to  be  in  existence,  and 
it  is  doubtful  if  any  were  kept  in  permanent  form.  Their 
meetings  were  held  clandestinely,  and  many  of  the  initiations 
were  held  in  Philadelphia  at  the  rooms  of  the  Alpha  Chapter. 
The  students  at  Princeton  college  were  not  supposed  to  be 
members  of  any  fraternity,  so  the  proceedings  were  conducted 
sub  rosa. 

On  account  of  the  limited  membership,  the  meetings  were 
verv  informal,  but  at  the  same  time  were  no  less  enjoyable. 

The  meeting  room  was  in  a  two-story-and-a-half  frame 
house,  situated  on  a  road  leading  down  the  hill  toward  the  old 
railroad  station,  since  moved  away.  The  room  was  about 
10x12  feet  in  size,  with  a  square  pine  table  and  half  a  dozen 
chairs  and  a  wooden  settee  for  the  accommodation  of  the  mem- 
bers. On  the  wall,  in  two  or  three  places,  the  skull  and  cross- 
bones  reposed  on  a  black  background,  in  size  about  15  x  12 
inches.  There  were  some  sort  of  black  hangings  about  the 
doors  and  windows,  to  give  the  room  a  sombre  effect  and  to  pre- 
vent the  light  from  being  noticed  by  passers-by  on  the  outside, 
as  it  was  reported  that  the  members  were  being  watched. 
Plenty  of  pipes  and  tobacco,  but  it  was  unanimously  voted 
there  should  be  no  stimulants.  Occasionally  there  were  essays 
read  and  the  regular  proceedings  of  a  society  meeting. 

The  opposition  of  the  faculty  continued  so  unrelentingly 
that  all  the  fraternities  which  had  chapters  at  Princeton  were 
compelled  to  withdraw.  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  was  among  the  last 
to  relinquish  its  hold,  no  one  being  initiated  after  the  Class  of 
1881  was  matriculated.

History  of  Gamma  Chapter 

Gamma,  the  third  chapter  to  be  founded,  was  established 
at  Lafayette  College,  Easton,  Pa.,  on  December  20,  1853,  eight 
months  after  the  foundation  of  Beta  at  Princeton.  The  short 
distance  from  Princeton  to  Easton,  and  the  intimate  relations 
existing  between  the  two  colleges,  for  the  reason  that  both  were 
under  the  auspices  of  the  Presbyterian  Church,  naturally  led 
Beta  to  look  toward  Lafayette  as  the  site  of  another  chapter, 
and,  upon  assent  of  the  Alpha  Chapter,  the  chapter  was  duly 
founded.  Stacy  Gardner  Potts,  Jr.,  who  had  been  initiated  as 
a  student  at  Princeton,  entered  Lafayette  and  gathered  together 
the  nucleus  of  the  chapter. 

Gamma  was  the  first  chapter  of  any  fraternity  to  enter 
Lafayette,  and  upon  her  fell  the  entire  concentrated  opposition 
of  faculty  and  trustees.  The  official  opposition  in  1857  took 
the  form  of  compelling  every  new  student  to  take  an  oath  at 
matriculation  that  he  was  not  and  would  not  become  a  member 
of  a  secret  Greek  letter  society.  Despite  this,  the  chapter 
reported  to  the  Convention  of  1860  that  it  "  continued  to  pros- 
per and  from  time  to  time  initiated  some  of  the  first  men  in  the 
institution."  Prior  to  1860  the  trustees  had  withdrawn  this 
oath,  so  that  the  delegate  was  able  to  report  that  "  the  dark 
clouds  of  the  displeasure  of  the  powers  that  be  which  hung  over 
us  have  been  dispelled,  and  the  sunshine  has  broken  through  to 
light  and  cheer  our  pathway.  .  .  .  This  odious,  unjust  and 
tyrannical  act  has  been  repealed  and  we  stand  to-day  recog- 
nized and  endorsed  by  faculty  and  students." 

For  over  twenty  years  Gamma  pursued  a  career  of  great 
prosperity,  numbering  among  her  members  many  brethren  who 
have  since  become  well  known  in  professional  and  business  life.

*  Instituted  at  Jefferson  College,  Canonsburg,  Pa.  That  college  was 
combined  with  Washington  College,  Washington,  Pa.,  in  1865,  under  the 
title  Washington  and  Jefferson  College. 


History  of  Delta  Chapter 

On  June  5,  1854,  Delta  Chapter  was  instituted  at  Jeffer- 
son College,  Canonsburg,  Pa.,  the  oldest  college  in  the  United 
States  west  of  the  Allegheny  Mountains.  The  installation  was 
conducted  by  Samuel  Smith,  of  Gamma  Chapter,  acting  under 
a  dispensation  of  the  Alpha  Chapter.  The  founders  were  J. 
W.  Polk  of  Maryland;  W.  H.  Pretlow,  of  Virginia,  and  H.  W. 
Patterson,  R.  S.  Graham,  G.  M.  Houtz  and  J.  T.  Kyle,  of  Penn- 
sylvania. At  this  time  there  were  chapters  at  Jefferson  of 
Beta  Theta  Pi,  Phi  Gamma  Delta  and  Phi  Kappa  Psi,  the  last 
two  fraternities  being  founded  at  Jefferson. 

On  account  of  the  rivalries  and  jealousies  of  these' earlier 
fraternities  there  was  serious  faculty  opposition  to  any  further 
organizations  of  a  similar  character,  so  the  chapter  existed 
for  a  time  sub  rosa.  But  in  1855,  soon  after  the  beginning  of 
the  first  college  year  of  its  life,  there  was  a  spirited  contest 
on  for  orator  in  one  of  the  college  literary  societies,  which 
before  it  ended  almost  wrecked  the  chapter.  For  in  the  heat 
of  the  campaign  one  of  its  members  so  far  forgot  himself  as 
to  be  guilty  of  unfraternal  conduct  of  such  a  serious  nature 
that  the  Alpha  Chapter  intervened  and  took  action  in  the  mat- 
ter. After  careful  consideration  of  the  case  the  chapter  was 
dissolved  and  four  of  its  members  expelled  from  the  Fraternity. 

But  the  old  spirit  still  lived  and  on  March  3,  1855,  the 
chapter  was  reorganized  and  a  fresh  start  made.  The  rebirth 
made  the  members  keenly  alive  to  the  honor  and  dignity  of  the 
Fraternity  as  well  as  to  its  associations  and  pleasures,  and  a 
quiet  conservatism  took  hold  of  the  young  chapter,  which 
began  to  increase  with  a  steady  and  careful  growth.  It  soon 
became  the  leading  society  at  Jefferson  and  it  has  been  the 
constant  aim  of  its  members  in  later  years  to  preserve  the 
pride  of  position  it  has  always  possessed. 

Canonsburg  was  a  quaint  old  country  village  in  those  days

and  chapter  houses  were  unknown  possessions.  Most  of  the 
men  roomed  at  a  house  about  half  a  mile  from  the  college  on 
the  road  to  Washington,  and  thus  were  associated  together  in 
bonds  of  closest  comradeship.  At  the  same  time  a  chapter  hall 
for  meetings  was  maintained  with  great  secrecy,  as  .the  fra- 
ternities of  that  day  were  wont  to  enhance  the  mystery  of  their 
fellowship  as  much  as  possible.  Of  the  chapter  in  those  days, 
Stephen  C.  McCandless,  later  a  prominent  attorney  in  Pitts- 
burgh, said:  "  While  a  freshman  in  the  year  1858,  it  was  my 
privilege  to  join  the  Fraternity.  It  had  its  representatives 
then  in  every  college  class,  and,  it  seemed  to  me,  there  were  more 
natural-born  and  thoroughbred  gentlemen  among  them  than 
any  other  body  of  students  there  similarly  associated." 

One  of  the  leading  spirits  of  the  chapter  at  this  time  was 
Chauncey  Forward  Black,  who  later  became  Lieutenant-Gov- 
ernor of  Pennsylvania  and  Democratic  leader  of  that  state. 
His  father  was  Chief  Justice  of  Pennsylvania  and  afterwards  a 
member  of  President  Buchanan's  Cabinet,  first  as  Attorney- 
General  and  then  as  Secretary  of  State.  At  the  convention  of 
the  Fraternitv  held  in  Washington  in  December,  1858,  Judge 
Black  dined  the  delegates  at  his  home  and  afterwards  presented 
them  to  President  Buchanan  at  the  White  House. 

The  Civil  War  was  a  severe  blow  to  Delta.  Old  Jefferson 
had  drawn  almost  as  largely  from  the  South  as  from  the  North, 
and  at  the  outbreak  of  the  war  more  than  half  of  the  students 
left  college,  some  to  enroll  themselves  under  the  flag  of  the 
TTnion  and  some  to  fight  under  the  Stars  and  Bars.  During 
the  war  nearly  every  man  in  the  chapter  fought  on  one  side  or 
the  other,  Delta  furnishing  nine  officers  to  the  Northern  forces 
and  eleven  to  the  Confedcracv. 

In  18fi5  Jefferson  College  was  united  with  Washington 
College  at  Washington,  Pa.,  only  seven  miles  away,  and  the 
two  colleges  then  took  the  name  of  "Washington  and  Jeffer- 
son," the  principal  scat  of  the  college  being  at  Washington. 
For  several  year-;  after  the  consolidation,  however,  the  buildings 
at  both  Canonsburg  and  Washington  continued  to  be  used. 
Accordingly  the  chapter  initiated  men  from  both  institutions 
and    maintained    in    reality   a   double  organization. 


HISTORY  OF  DELTA  CHAPTER.  201 

Delta  recuperated  quicker  from  the  effects  of  the  war  than 
did  the  other  fraternities,  and  as  faculty  recognition  had  been 
secured,  it  at  once  took  front  rank  in  the  fraternity  world. 
Since  that  time  five  other  fraternities  have  established  chapters 
at  Old  Washington  and  Jefferson,  but  the  men  of  Delta  still 
hold  the  place  that  is  theirs  by  right  of  inheritance  and  present 
worth,  the  foremost  representative  of  the  local  Greek  Letter 
World. 

The  World  War  almost  wiped  Delta  out  of  existence  for 
out  of  an  active  membership  of  twenty-three  at  the  entrance 
of  the  United  States  in  the  Great  War  but  three  were  left  to 
pull  old  Delta  through.  But  being  true  Phi  Kaps  they  did 
pull  her  through  and  now  with  many  old  men  coming  back 
and  fine  prospects  in  pledges  Delta  is  prepared  to  take  her  old 
stand  at  the  head  of  fraternities  at  Washington  and  Jefferson. 
A  plan  is  under  way  whereby  with  the  loyal  cooperation  of  her 
alumni  Delta  will  own  her  own  chapter  house  soon  and  with  her 
increased  membership  be  stronger  than  ever.

EMANUEL  H.  REIGART 
JOHN  SOUTHGATE  TUCKER 
JAMES  DAVID  WATTERS 


History  of  Epsilon  Chapter 

On  the  9th  of  November,  1854,  a  charter  authorizing  the 
establishment  of  the  Epsilon  Chapter  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma 
Fraternity  was  granted  to  Emanuel  H.  Reigart,  who  together 
with  John  S.  Tucker,  Charles  F.  Himes  and  James  D.  Watters 
founded  the  chapter  soon  after  the  granting  of  the  charter. 
Reigart  had  been  previously  initiated  at  his  home,  Williamsport, 
Pa.,  on  September  5,  by  William  L.  Neff  of  Gamma  Chapter. 

No  exact  records  seem  to  have  been  kept  of  the  Fraternity's 
existence  during  its  first  two  or  three  years,  since  its  life  was  a 
very  precarious  one  and  it  had  no  regular  meeting  place.  Its 
early  history  was  similar  to  that  of  all  the  earlier  fraternities 
at  Dickinson  College  and  perhaps  most  other  colleges  where 
they  were  introduced  fifty  or  sixty  years  ago.  A  few  years 
previous  to  the  entrance  of  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Fraternity 
into  Dickinson  College  the  Zeta  Psi  Fraternity  established  a 
chapter  there  and  for  more  than  two  years  it  had  a  vigorous 
existence,  numbering  at  one  time  thirty-two  members,  some  of 
them  the  leading  men  of  the  college ;  but  so  great  was  the 
hostility  of  the  faculty  to  all  organizations  of  this  kind  that 
they  succeeded  in  so  effectually  squelching  this  one  that  it  was 
never  revived  and  Epilson  Chapter  came  near  having  the  same 
experience.  Notwithstanding  the  efforts  of  the  members  to 
maintain  secrecy  concerning  the  organization,  the  existence  of 
the  Fraternity  was  discovered  by  the  faculty  of  the  college 
and  all  of  its  members,  under  penalty  of  expulsion,  were  ordered 
to  disband  the  chapter  and  cease  all  further  activity  in  this 
direction.  Foreseeing  that  something  of  this  kind  was  likely 
to  happen,  they  initiated  Clayton  C.  Pennel  who  had  not  been 
before  the  faculty  and  therefore  had  not  made  any  promise 
such  as  was  exacted  of  the  others,  and  he  kept  the  organization 
alive  until  the  storm  had  blown  over.  How  well  these  promises 
were  kept  by  the  others  is  a  matter  of  conjecture,  since  they

probably  made  them  with  certain  "  mental  reservations,"  a  pro- 
ceeding that  is  not  unknown  among  college  students  even  in 
this  "  enlightened  age." 

It  is  a  matter  of  record  that  the  chapter  held  a  meeting 
on  the  21st  of  September,  1858,  in  a  cornfield  near  Carlisle, 
since  even  then  it  was  not  deemed  advisable  to  have  any  regular 
place  of  meeting.  This  meeting,  however,  did  not  pass  off 
undisturbed,  for  hearing  some  noise  in  the  vicinity  they  feared 
discovery  and  unceremoniously  scattered  in  all  directions,  not, 
however,  before  they  had  initiated  Zebulon  Dyer  of  the  Class 
of  1859.  Brother  Dyer  has  the  distinction  of  being  the  first 
graduate  member  of  the  chapter  to  die,  being  killed  in  battle 
in  December,  1861.  At  this  same  meeting  it  was  agreed  to 
disband  after  adjournment,  subject  to  the  call  of  the  Alpha, 
so  that  if  any  of  the  members  should  be  questioned  they  might 
say  that  they  had  belonged  to  a  fraternity  but  that  it  was  now 
disbanded.  In  November  of  this  year  a  hall  was  procured  for 
the  meetings  of  the  chapter  and  it  is  not  likely  that  since  that 
time  the  Fraternity  has  ever  been  without  a  "  local  habitation," 
certainly  not  for  any  considerable  length  of  time. 

About  this  time  the  Fraternity  seems  to  have  been  in  a 
very  flourishing  condition,  since  among  its  members  were  ten 
members  of  the  Class  of  1857,  eleven  of  1858  and  nine  of  1859. 
Of  these  thirty  men,  eight  still  survive.  It  is  perhaps  worthy 
of  mention  that  at  this  time  the  Fraternity's  only  rival  was  the 
Phi  Kappa  Psi,  established  here  in  1859,  and  this  rivalry,  not 
to  say  enmity,  has  been  kept  up  as  a  sort  of  tradition  to  the 
present  day.  One  man  who  was  initiated  in  1859  had  a  dis- 
tinction probably  unique  in  the  history  of  fraternities  here,  in 
as  much  as  he  belonged  to  both  of  these  fraternities  at  the  same 
time.  When  this  fact  was  discovered  he  was  promptly  expelled 
from  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma. 

Since  a  large  number  of  the  members  of  Epilson  were 
Southerners,  the  chapter  was  almost  broken  up  by  the  Civil 
War.  A  special  meeting  of  the  chapter  was  held  on  the  21st 
of  April,  1861,  for  the  purpose  of  bidding  a  formal  farewell  to 
the  brethren  from  the  South  who  felt  compelled  to  withdraw 
from  the  college. 


HISTORY  OF  EPSILON  CHAPTER.  259 

On  the  morning  of  the  21st,  at  ten  minutes  past  midnight, 
the  members  gathered  in  Room  50,  West  College,  and  held  a 
sort  of  love  feast  and  experience  meeting.  All  business  was 
laid  aside  for  the  brethren  to  bid  their  last  adieu  to  each  other, 
perhaps  never  to  meet  again.  The  occasion  was  a  most  solemn 
one  and  sad  thoughts  filled  the  breasts  of  all  at  parting  with 
each  other  who  were  so  strongly  bound  together  by  fraternal 
ties.  The  Alpha  addressed  the  meeting  in  a  most  solemn  and 
impressive  manner,  and  many  an  eye  filled  with  tears  at  the 
thought  of  parting.  The  meeting  adjourned  in  silence  and  each 
went  to  his  own  room.  Afterward  some  enlisted  in  the  Northern 
and  some  in  the  Confederate  service,  and  never  met  again. 

From  this  time  forward  the  history  of  the  Fraternity  shows 
nothing  remarkable.  That  the  faculty  of  the  college  now  began 
to  look  upon  the  evil  as  ineradicable  seems  probable  from  the 
fact  that  at  least  as  early  as  1863  the  Fraternity  publicly 
celebrated  its  "  anniversary,"  which  would  not  have  been  risked 
a  few  years  earlier.  About  1865  the  Fraternity  was  again 
exceptionally  strong.  There  were  five  men  from  the  Class  of 
1864,  five  from  1865  and  seven  from  1866.  These  figures  will 
seem  all  the  more  remarkable  when  the  additional  fact  is  men- 
tioned that  the  Class  of  1866  graduated  only  sixteen  men.  At 
this  time,  too,  there  were  three  other  fraternities  in  the  college, 
the  Sigma  Chi  having  entered  in  1859  and  the  Theta  Delta 
Chi  in  1861. 

About  1873  the  college  began  to  decline  in  numbers  so  that 
the  catalogue  of  1877-78  contains  only  fifty-one  names  and  in 
the  meantime  another  fraternity,  the  Beta  Theta  Pi,  had  entered 
the  field.  Under  these  circumstances  it  became  so  difficult  to 
keep  up  the  chapter  in  accordance  with  its  traditions  that  it 
was  thought  best  to  surrender  the  charter,  which  was  accord- 
ingly done  in  1877.  Apparently  no  attempt  was  made  to 
revive  it  until  the  spring  of  1895.  A  few  years  previous  to 
this  time,  a  strong  local  fraternity,  known  as  the  Alpha  Zeta 
Phi,  had  been  organized  in  the  college  and  when  it  became 
known  that  this  organization  was  looking  around  for  an  oppor- 
tunity to  enter  some  national  fraternity,  the  "  psychological 
moment  "  seemed  to  have  arrived  and  negotiations  were  at  once 


260  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

begun  which  terminated  in  the  re-establishment  of  the  Fra- 
ternity by  taking  in  all  of  the  members  of  the  local  organiza- 
tion except  perhaps  one  or  two  who  did  not  care  to  belong  to 
any  fraternity.  On  the  evening  of  June  3,  1895,  were  initiated 
about  fifteen  splendid  fellows  and  the  Fraternity  has  main- 
tained a  high  rank  ever  since  and  is  now  second  to  no  other  in 
the  college  either  in  numbers  or  influence,  "  our  enemies  them- 
selves being  judges." 

The  only  other  event  that  needs  special  attention  is  the 
erection  of  a  chapter  house.  The  movement  for  the  erection 
of  fraternity  houses  had  become  so  powerful  that  it  was  felt 
that  our  Fraternity  could  not  afford  to  hold  aloof  and  in  the 
fall  of  1906  the  beautiful  and  commodious  house  of  the  Epilson 
Chapter  was  formally  opened. 

In  more  recent  years  classes  have  come  and  gone  as  of  old. 
But  the  traditions  of  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  have  been  maintained, 
and  many  are  the  illustrious  names  that  have  been  added  to  our 
roll. 

When  the  test  of  the  Great  War  came,  the  sons  of  Epsilon 
played  their  part  valiantly  and  sixty-five  of  them  wore  the 
khaki.  Four  of  our  number,  Brothers  John  Zug  Steese,  '04, 
Earl  E.  Rahn,  '12,  John  T.  Richards,  '18,  and  Kenneth  L, 
Steck,  '19,  made  the  supreme  sacrifice.  All  of  the  sixty-five 
served  with  distinction  in  the  great  struggle,  and  one,  Colonel 
James  G.  Steese,  '02,  of  the  General  Staff,  was  especially 
honored  by  being  awarded  the  Distinguished  Service  Medal. 
Epsilon  is  proud  of  her  veterans  and  will  ever  honor  the 
memories  of  those  who  sleep  across  the  seas. 

With  the  signing  of  the  armistice,  the  undergraduates  who 
had  been  in  the  service  rapidly  returned,  and  in  the  year  1918 
by  action  of  the  Executive  Board  Epsilon  was  placed  at  the 
head  of  the  chapter  roll.  She  is  still  advancing  and  has  every 
reason  to  look  forward  to  a  future  as  brilliant  as  her  past.

History  of  Zeta  Chapter 

Zeta  Chapter  was  organized  by  William  Lewis  Neff,  of  the 
Gamma  Chapter,  while  a  student  at  law  in  the  office  of  Colonel 
Reah  Frazer  at  Lancaster.  By  a  previous  arrangement,  Van 
Lear  Perry,  who  had  been  at  Lafayette  College  with  Neff,  met 
him  there  and  entered  Franklin  and  Marshall  College,  and  they 
jointly  instituted  the  chapter  on  the  13th  of  October,  1854,  a 
charter  having  been  previously  granted  by  the  Alpha  Chapter. 

Although  the  majority  of  the  first  initiates  died  in  the 
prime  of  their  manhood,  their  lives  bear  the  mark  of  distin- 
guished service,  not  only  within  the  narrow  confines  of  their 
particular  homes,  but  service  to  the  country  at  large.  Their 
ardent  devotion  to  life  and  learning,  to  duty  and  country,  their 
manly  virtues  and  unfaltering  courage  remind  us  of  our  solemn 
pledge  to  the  high  and  lofty  ideals  which  these  founders  baptized 
with  their  life's  blood  for  our  guidance  and  imitation. 

For  fully  twenty  years  Zefa  Chapter  enjoyed  a  prosperous 
and  uninterrupted  career.  Although  the  college  fraternity  as 
such  was  in  those  days  mgrata  persona  with  the  faculties  every- 
where, and  Zeta  Chapter  was  no  exception  to  the  rule,  but  very 
little  friction  is  reported  in  the  minutes  between  the  members  and 
the  higher  powers.  It  is  but  natural  that  a  secret  organization 
of  young  men,  by  common  consent,  subject  to  stringent  rules 
and  regulations,  should  arouse  the  suspicion  and  criticism  of 
many  an  honest  and  well  meaning  college  professor.  Those 
were  the  years  of  the  first  storm  and  stress  of  fraternity  life,  and 
many  a  chapter  perished  in  the  struggle.  Those  were  the  years 
in  which  the  American  college  boy  awakened  to  a  sense  of  his 
own  individual  co-operation  in  his  educational  career ;  they 
mark  an  epoch  in  the  history  of  our  whole  educational  system. 
Crude,  infantile  and  infrequent  as  the  chapter  meetings  were  in 
those  years,  primitive  and  unofficial  as  their  meeting  places 
seem  to  have  been,  there  is  no  indication  of  lack  of  interest  and

enthusiasm.  And  when  we  read  in  the  minutes  of  an  October 
session  of  1869  that  the  faculty  had  increased  its  rigid  sur- 
veillance over  the  fraternities,  we  find  this  followed  by  the 
resolution  henceforth  to  hold  fewer  business  meetings  and  more 
social  gatherings  to  make  the  secrecy  appear  less  conspicuous. 
Poverty  was  the  lot  of  the  men  of  that  time,  and  the  chapter 
had  hardly  ventured  upon  the  renting  of  a  hall.  During  the  war 
year  of  1864  its  chairs  were  confiscated  and  the  carpet  was  sold 
for  the  payment  of  the  rent,  and  the  meeting  had  again  to  be 
held  in  some  young  lawyer's  lonely  office  or  perchance  in  the 
cellar  of  the  Literary  Society  halls.  But  not  daunted  in  the 
least,  the  boys  went  on  somewhat  in  Plato's  fashion  to  cultivate 
"  eros  "  and  "  Dialegesthai  "  friendship  and  thirst  for  knowl- 
edge, and  to  hold  anniversaries  with  great  pomp,  graced  by  the 
usual  poem,  the  valedictory  and  the  response. 

The  interregnum  of  1873—74,  of  which  no  minutes  are 
extant,  was  followed  by  a  second  period  of  twenty  years,  with 
intervals  between  1885  and  1887,  1891  and  1895.  This  is  the 
period  of  the  rise  of  the  American  university,  with  its  accom- 
panying disturbances  of  college  life  and  college  learning.  The 
old  primitive  conditions  of  fraternity  methods  and  meetings  had 
been  outgrown,  students  became  more  choice  in  dress  and  man- 
ners and  in  the  selection  of  men  on  the  basis  of  new  judgments  ; 
the  meetings  were  suspended  for  months  and  years,  because  of 
the  lack  of  men,  but  the  spirit  lingered  on.  Brothers  Hager  and 
Keller  with  singular  loyalty  satisfied  the  requirements  of  the 
charter,  until  a  better  day  dawned,  and  the  opportunity  of  a 
more  vigorous  life  had  arrived.  During  the  larger  portion  of 
this  second  period  the  chapter  succeeded  in  renting  and  paying 
for  a  hall,  in  which  they  regularly  met  once  a  week,  while  in  the 
first  period  meetings  took  place  at  long  intervals  of  a  month  — 
rarely  every  two  weeks.  This  period  is,  therefore,  the  period  of 
closer  fellowship,  of  solidification,  of  effort  towards  permanency 
on  the  basis  of  real  estate.  It  was  also  the  period  when  the  rela- 
tion between  faculty  and  fraternity  grew  more  friendly,  when  the 
authorities  began  to  see  the  educational  value  of  fraternal  life, 
and  in  the  new  universities  fraternities  spring  up  like  mush- 
rooms.    It  is,  however,  not  until  1896,  the  beginning  of  the 


HISTORY  OF  ZETA  CHAPTER.  319 

"  modern  period,"  that  the  chapter  becomes  fully  and  perma- 
nently established  as  a  prominent  factor  in  the  college  com- 
munity. The  names  of  the  sainted  Glase  Gerhard,  of  Pilgram 
and  Dieffenbach  are  pre-eminent  in  those  days  of  reconstruction. 
We  read  in  a  minute  of  September  30,  1896:  "A  house  was 
rented  on  West  James  Street,  in  close  proximity  to  the  college. 
Already  fraternity  life  has  advanced  tenfold.  All  the  boys 
voice  the  one  sentiment  that  it  is  the  only  ideal  college  life. 
This  evening  was  a  notable  one  for  Zeta  Chapter."  For  the 
last  twenty-four  years  the  number  of  active  members  has  been 
greater  than  ever  before,  the  Fraternity  has  become  a  dis- 
ciplinary power  in  the  college,  it  has  become  a  great  benevolent 
institution.  In  1886  the  chapter  contributed  one  hundred  dol- 
lars towards  the  observatory;  in  1900  the  same  amount  to  the 
Science  building,  while  individual  members  gave  many  thou- 
sands towards  the  building  and  its  equipment,  furnishing  a 
professor's  room.  The  Fraternity  revived  and  intensified  the 
alumni's  interest  for  the  college. 

Except  for  the  dislocation  caused  by  the  Great  War,  the 
continuing  record  of  the  chapter  has  been  uneventful  until  re- 
cently. As  nearly  as  can  be  ascertained,  Zeta  furnished  sixty 
men  for  the  army,  navy  and  aviation  corps  of  the  United  States 
during  the  war.  Most  of  these  saw  service  in  the  American 
Expeditionary  Force,  Major  Frederick  A.  Rupp,  of  the  Medi- 
cal Corps  being  doubtless  of  the  earliest  class,  1897,  to  enter 
the  service.  Lieut.  Henry  C.  Welker,  1902,  who  died  at  the 
Walter  Reed  Hospital,  Washington,  D.  C,  having  been  in- 
valided home  from-  France,  was  the  only  one  of  the  chapter 
to  lose  his  life  in  defense  of  democracy.  After  the  establish- 
ment of  the  Students  Army  Training  Corps,  the  active  members 
lived  in  the  barracks  with  the  rest  of  the  students,  and  the 
house  was  practically  disused  from  September,  1918,  to  Janu- 
ary, 1919.  It  was  a  difficult  period  for  the  chapter,  but  it 
was  decided  to  keep  up  the  chapter  house  as  long  as  possible. 
A  portion  of  the  interest  of  the  Zeta  Chapter  House  Fund 
was  of  great  help  at  this  time,  in  tiding  over  the  financial  diffi- 
culty. The  fifteen  members  in  the  S.  A.  T.  C.  kept  the  spirit 
alive,    and   even    initiated   new   men.     At    last,    in    September, 


320  PHI  KAPPA  SIGMA  FRATERNITY. 

1919,  the  long-awaited  consummation  was  accomplished  of 
securing  as  its  own  the  house  which  had  been  rented  by  the 
chapter  for  eight  years.  The  alumni  and  officers  of  the  House 
Fund  agreed  to  purchase  the  house  at  558  West  James  Street 
for  $7,500.00,  and  paid  about  $1,000.00  for  improvements. 
A  mortgage  was  executed  for  a  portion  of  the  purchase  price. 
Zeta  now  rejoices  in  the  possession  of  its  own  house,  after 
nearly  twenty -five  years  of  endeavor;  and  it  was  fortunate  that 
the  house  was  taken,  as  the  chapter  would  otherwise  have  been 
homeless,  since  another  college  organization  was  about  to  buy 
it.  So  Zeta  can  welcome  to  its  house  as  well  as  to  its  heart 
every  Phi  Kapp  Avho  may  visit  Lancaster.

Eta  Chapter 

UNIVERSITY  OF  VIRGINIA 

CHARLOTTESVILLE,  VA. 


Instituted  December  31,  A.  D.  1854 


TAYLOR  BEATTIE 


History  of  Eta  Chapter 

Eta  Chapter  was  organized  through  the  efforts  of  Robert 
H.  Stirling,  of  the  Beta  Chapter  at  Princeton,  who  entered  the 
University  of  Virginia,  with  authority  to  constitute  a  chapter. 
He,  with  Taylor  Beattie,  organized  the  chapter  December  31, 
1854.  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  was  the  first  college  fraternity  to 
enter  the  university,  then  the  most  influential  in  the  South. 
The  chapter  was  well  established  and  has  maintained  a  leading 
position  ever  since  its  institution.  The  original  charter, 
though  yellow  with  age,  is  still  well  preserved  among  the 
archives. 

During  the  years  1854—61  the  university  was  very  pros- 
perous and  each  year  brought  an  increase  in  the  number  of 
students,  and  the  chapter  prospered  with  the  university.  The 
records  for  the  first  three  years  are  not  in  existence,  and  the 
places  where  the  early  meetings  were  held  are  unknown.  It 
is  supposd  they  were  held  in  the  rooms  of  the  members. 

In  1855  the  membership  increased  to  such  an  extent  that 
a  committee  was  appointed  to  procure  a  meeting  place  and  to 
draft  a  set  of  by-laws ;  the  latter  provided  for  entertainment 
of  a  literary  character,  debates  and  original  essays.  Fines 
were  imposed  for  neglect  of  duty.  The  members  seemed  to 
have  taken  a  great  interest  in  their  literary  efforts,  as  the 
reading  of  the  essays  occupied  over  an  hour,  and  there  were 
very  few  excuses   or  fines. 

The  hall  had  not  as  yet  been  secured,  and  the  meetings 
were  first  held  in  Brother  Beattie's  rooms,  which  was  No.  1 
Blue  Cottage,   and  just  across  from  the  university. 

In  November,  1856,  the  efforts  to  secure  a  permanent 
meeting  place  were  successful  and  a  room  was  obtained  in  the 
Monticello  House  in  Charlottesville,  about  a  mile  from  the 
university.  The  chapter  now  prospered  more  than  ever  before, 
and  by  December  they  were  compelled  to  procure  two  rooms 

375

and  have  them  made  into  one  large  apartment  in  order  to 
accommodate  their  members.  From  1857-  the  records  were 
kept  in  a  large  journal,  which  is  still  in  possession  of  the 
chapter.  In  1858  new  quarters  were  procured.  This  hall 
was  on  a  cross  street  about  one  hundred  yards  from  the 
Charlottesville  post  office.  It  was  neatly  and  comfortably 
fitted  up.  The  meetings  were  held  weekly  and  generally  lasted 
about  four  hours.  Five  or  six  associates  from  Delta,  Epsilon, 
Kappa,  Lambda  and  Mu  chapters  affiliated  with  the  Eta,  and 
in  the  following  year  several  additions  were  made  to  the  roll. 
The  approach  of  the  Civil  War  disintegrated  the  chapter 
entirely,  and  the  members  entered  the  army,  many  of  whom 
became  prominent  in  that  memorable  struggle.  Many  brethren 
met  face  to  face  on  the  field  of  battle,  Union  and  Confederate, 
but  loyalty  to  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  never  faltered,  as  the  follow- 
ing incident,  one  of  many,  indicates :  Brother  King,  of  Eta, 
wrote  that  he  was  made  a  prisoner  in  September  of  1861  and 
met  a  brother  Phi  Kap  (Dr.  William  F.  Goodwin,  of  Epsilon, 
then  a  surgeon  in  the  Union  Army),  who  was  as  kind  as  he 
could  be  in  relieving  his  wants  and  in  making  him  comfortable. 
He  wrote.  "  I  have  never  lost  sight  for  a  moment  the  prin- 
ciples of  our  old  Fraternity,  and  though  I  was  a  rebel  in  the 
fullest  acceptation  of  that  term,  I  have  never  been  any  the  less 
a  Phi  Kap."  It  was  not  until  the  autumn  of  1872,  through  the 
untiring  efforts  of  Brother  Leroy  S.  Edwards,  that  on  Thurs- 
day, the  26th  day  of  September,  the  chapter  was  reorganized. 
In  June,  1866,  Brother  Edwards  had  been  informed  by  a  mem- 
ber of  another  fraternity  that  an  unsuccessful  effort  had  been 
made  by  one  or  two  Phi  Kaps  who  had  returned  to  the  univers- 
ity, after  four  years'  service  in  the  Confederate  Army,  to  revive 
Eta,  and  further  that  a  number  of  the  best  men  then  at  the 
university  had  joined  in  this  move.  However,  nothing  came  of 
it,  and  in  1870  Brother  Edwards* met  Brother  Woolsey  John- 
son, of  Beta,  in  New  York.  They  had  not  met  each  other  since 
1860,  but  this  lapse  of  time  had  not  lessened  their  interest  in 
Phi  Kappa  Sigma.  Brother  Johnson  urged  the  reorganization 
of  Eta,  and  soon  after  Brother  Ferriere,  then  Grand  Alpha, 
wrote  to   inquire   if  Eta  could  be   revived.      The   opportunity 


HISTORY  OF  ETA  CHAPTER.  377 

offered  and  by  authority  of  the  Grand  Chapter,  Brother  Ed- 
wards initiated  in  Richmond,  D'Arcy  Paul  Morton,  then  a  stu- 
dent at  the  university,  and  on  his  return  to  Charlottesville  he, 
assisted  by  Brothers  Jacob  Michaux,  of  Powhatan  County, 
Va.,  and  Benjamin  Whiteley,  Jr.,  of  Baltimore,  soon  placed 
Eta  upon  a  firm  foundation.  The  fortunes  of  the  Fraternity 
could  not  have  been  placed  in  the  keeping  of  worthier  men. 
For  a  number  of  years  the  members  held  their  meetings  in  a 
building  outside  the  college  grounds  and  later  the  chapter 
moved  to  a  cottage  in  the  immediate  vicinity  of  the  lawn  of  the 
university  campus. 

In  1908  a  gradual  expansion  forced  the  chapter  to  seek 
more  commodious  quarters,  and  it  rented  a  brick  house  on  Daw- 
son's Row  where  it  remained  until  1911,  when  its  present  home 
was  occupied.  The  Eta  chapter  house  is  the  first  fruit  of  the 
national  Endorsement  Fund,  and  represents  contributions  from 
all  chapters  of  the  Fraternity,  those  from  the  old  Dominion 
predominating  in  their  subscriptions.  The  house  is  most  com- 
modious, thoroughly  equipped  and  in  architectual  harmony 
with  the  colonial  buildings  of  the  University. 

Old  Eta  has  produced  many  distinguished  alumni,  among 
them  a  United  States  Senator  from  Louisiana,  a  Brigadier- 
General  of  the  United  States  Army,  a  United  States  Judge  in 
Alabama,  a  Chief  Justice  of  California,  a  Bishop  of  the  Protes- 
tant Episcopal  Church,  a  Solicitor  General  of  the  United 
States,  jurists  of  various  state  courts,  and  many  others  well 
known  in  the  different  professions.  With  a  home  the  best  at 
the  university,  her  future  is  bright  with  promise  of  renewed 
prosperity.

History  of  Theta  Chapter 

This  chapter  was  founded  the  1st  of  June,  1855,  through 
the  instrumentality  of  Charles  W.  Ross,  of  the  Beta  Chapter. 
At  the  time  the  charter  for  Centenary  College  was  granted  an 
epidemic  of  yellow  fever  was  raging  in  Jackson,  La.,  where 
the  college  was  located,  which  caused  a  general  dispersion 
of  the  students  and  prevented  a  complete  organization  of  the 
chapter.  But  through  the  nursing  care  of  Johnson  F.  Mc- 
Kneely,  of  the  Eta,  it  soon  became  prosperous.  In  December, 
1856,  there  were  eighteen  members.  Their  place  of  meeting 
was  reported  to  be  most  suitable  and  secret.  They  subse- 
quently had  a  fine  hall,  for  which  they  paid  $30.00  rent  each 
session  of  the  college  year.  Their  badges  were  made  in  New 
Orleans  and  had  silver  skulls.  In  1858  they  had  no  hall.  Dur- 
ing this  year  several  of  the  members  who  left  college  and  resided 
in  East  Baton  Rouge  Parish,  La.,  made  an  effort  to  form  what 
they  called  a  "  Vagabond  "  chapter.  They  sent  forward  a  peti- 
tion to  the  Alpha  Chapter  for  a  charter,  setting  forth  in  glow- 
ing terms  the  prospects  of  forming  such  an  organization,  but 
the  permission  was  not  granted. 

The  advent  of  several  new  fraternities,  about  this  time, 
seriously  affected  the  prosperity  of  the  chapter,  and  this, 
coupled  with  an  outbreak  of  smallpox  in  December  of  I860, 
caused  a  stampede  among  the  students,  which  almost  anni- 
hilated the  chapter.  The  faculty  had  to  suspend  college  exer- 
cises before  the  termination  of  the  session.  Upon  the  re- 
sumption of  duties  in  the  autumn,  only  three  members  comprised 
the  chapter. 

In  1860  they  held  meetings  every  two  weeks  on  Friday  and 
had  two  essays  and  an  oration  delivered  by  members  elected  for 
that  purpose.  They  had  their  hall  in  a  two-story  brick  house 
over  the  Roman  Catholic  Church. 

The  chapter  upon  the  approach  of  the  war  became  disin-

tegrated  and  adopted  resolutions  to  the  effect  that  "  this  Fra- 
ternity shall  be  one  of  white  men  and  white  men  only,"  and  sent 
them  to  the  convention  with  the  threat,  that  if  they  did  not 
pass,  the  Theta  would  secede. 

It  was  from  this  chapter,  through  the  efforts  of  Brothef 
James  W.  Barrow,  that  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  College  was 
brought  into  existence.  In  1859  Brother  Barrow  moved  to 
Monticello,  Ark.,  and  agitated  the  idea  of  founding  a  school  at 
that  place.  He  first  obtained  a  charter  from  the  State  Legis- 
lature, and  the  act  of  incorporation  was  passed  at  the  Twelfth 
Session  of  the  General  Assembly  at  Little  Rock,  entitled:  "  An 
Act  to  incorporate  the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  Male  College." 
This  act  was  approved  February  £1,  1859.  (See  page  249, 
Act  No.  194.  Acts  passed  at  the  Twelfth  Session  of  the  Gen- 
eral Assembly  of  the  State  of  Arkansas,  Little  Rock,  Ark.) 
The  "  college  "  was  a  two-story  frame  building,  with  the  char- 
acters 3>  K  %  inscribed  on  the  walls,  and  was  designed  to  ac- 
commodate two  hundred  students.  It  was  the  first  institu- 
tion in  the  State  of  Arkansas  to  offer  collegiate  education. 
While  the  charter  describes  the  incorporators  as  "  fratres  of 
the  Phi  Kappa  Sigma  College  "  none  of  them  was  a  member  of 
the  Fraternity.  Brother  Barrow  was  not  an  incorporator, 
although  the  moving  spirit  in  the  foundation  of  the  institution 
and  its  only  president.  After  being  in  operation  about  two 
years,  the  building  was  used  by  the  Confederate  government 
as  a  storehouse  for  supplies,  and  was  destroyed  by  fire  during 
the  raid  of  the  Federal  troops  through  that  section  in  1864.

History  of  Iota  Chapter 

In  1853  several  students  at  Columbia  College  (now  Uni- 
versity) feeling  that  there  were  no  fraternities  in  the  college 
that  they  would  willingly  join,  concluded  to  form  a  local  society 
of  their  own  on  a  more  select  principle.  There  were  many 
resident  members  of  the  Alpha  Delta  Phi  in  New  York,  who 
urged  them  to  apply  for  a  charter  from  their  society.  They 
did  so,  and  nearly  two  years  having  elapsed  before  any  action 
was  taken  in  the  matter,  they  became  disgusted  at  the  delay, 
and  just  as  an  offer  of  initiation  was  proffered  by  that  f rater- 
nity,  they  became  acquainted  with  Dr.  S.  B.  Wylie  Mitchell, 
the  founder  of  Phi  Kappa  Sigma,  and,  already  knowing  sev- 
eral members  of  the  Alpha  Chapter,  they  resolved  to  become  Phi 
Kaps.  On  the  10th  of  November,  1855,  the  Iota  Chapter  was 
instituted  by  Dr.  Mitchell  and  Joseph  Kay  Caldwell,  of  the 
Alpha  Chapter,  in  the  fifth  story  of  the  New  York  Hotel. 

The  lodge  rooms  were  subsequently  located  in  Room  No. 
20,  483  Broadway,  and  were  large,  commodious  and  handsomely 
furnished.  Most  of  the  fraternities  at  Columbia  had  their 
rooms  on  this  street,  and  while  an  attempt  was  made  to  keep 
the  locality  secret,  it  soon  became  known  to  the  lady  friends  of 
the  members,  who  took  a  great  interest  in  the  chapter  and  pre- 
sented to  it  several  fine  oil  paintings. 

In  October,  1857,  they  held  meetings  in  Florence's  Hotel, 
but  subsequently  moved  to  new  rooms,  and  ones  that  gave  gen- 
eral satisfaction,  in  the  third  story  of  No.  763  Broadway,  which 
were  said  to  be  worthy  of  the  increasing  dignity  of  the  Iota 
Chapter.  In  April  of  the  following  year  these  quarters  were 
given  up  for  the  reason  that  they  were  not  permitted  to  sing 
their  songs  as  enthusiastically  as  they  wished  and  were  fre- 
quently desired  to  restrain  their  applause.  This  they  could  not 
do  and  outlined  plans  to  occupy  rooms  on  Madison  Square  on 
the  corner  of  Broadway  and  Twenty-third  Street.     This  plan
